Eric Clap­ton: Cross­roads Gui­tar Fes­ti­val

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Satur­day, 9pm, Stu­dio Eric Clap­ton, an oldie but a goodie, founded the Cross­roads Cen­tre — a 32-bed fa­cil­ity for ad­dic­tion treat­ment — in An­tigua in 1997. To help raise funds, he or­gan­ised some of the best guitarists in the US to join him on stage in 2007, 2010 and this year. The per­for­mance here was his first fes­ti­val — held in Dal­las in June 2004 — and fea­tures Car­los San­tana, Bo Did­dley, Booker T & the MG’s and JJ Cale, among many oth­ers. What th­ese guys can do with a gui­tar is as­tound­ing. Who knew there were so many dif­fer­ent types of the one in­stru­ment?
