Six O’Clock Triple Shot – 3/4/14 Say It Ain’t So, “Slow”!
(The Six O’Clock Triple Shot is a daily feature of three songs that share a common theme, heard weeknights on 94.9 WMMQ)
A recent article in Classic Rock Magazine suggests that “Slowhand” Eric Clapton may be contemplating retirement when he turns 70 next year. Clapton recently wrapped up a tour of Japan, and hinted to fans in the tour program that it may be his last visit to the country as a touring artist. Though this sounds like bad news for those like me who have a Clapton show still on their bucket list, the guitar legend goes further to suggest that he may continue performing one-off shows that wouldn’t require the extensive work and travel that goes along with a full blown tour. Hopefully, we’ll see one more U.S. go-round from Clapton before he hangs up the six-string for good!
Today, we’ll play three songs from Clapton’s extensive music catalog, just to help keep that fire burning bright!! We start solo style with “Let It Rain”, followed by an unbelievable live version of Blind Faith’s “Can’t Find My Way Home” recorded in 2007 at his Crossroads Festival. Last, but certainly not least, the incredible sound of Clapton and Duane Allman with Derek & The Dominos’ “Bell-Bottomed Blues”. It’s tonight’s Six O’Clock Triple Shot, only on 94.9 WMMQ!!
