Clapton Brings the Blues to MSG

Eric Clapton brought the blues to New York’s Madison Square Garden this past weekend with his two-night Crossroads Guitar Festival benefiting the Crossroads Centre drug treatment center in Antigua that he founded.

This marked the fourth Crossroads festival hosted by Clapton, and as tradition, it featured an all-star cast of more than 30 guitarists including Jeff Beck, Vince Gill, Keith Urban, John Mayer, Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, Jimmie Vaughan, Gary Clark Jr. and a surprise appearance by Keith Richards.

The affair was filmed for a future DVD release, but fan footage has already surfaced. Check out a few clips below and head here to view a slideshow from the New York Times.
