    Here's a couple of my favorites:




    Believe it or not, I first heard that Eric Clapton track when it was used as the theme music for a satirical TV show that HBO had back in the early 80's called Not Necessarily The News.

    I believe it, lol!

    Believe it or not, I first heard it on a transistor radio when I was 16 in 1974.

    I've seen Sonny Landreth as well, playing lead for John Hiatt. He did nothing but throw down sizzling leads for 2 1/2 hours.

    THAT'S the show I heard it on!!!!

    Man, I've been trying to figure that out for years. That's where I heard it first, too. And then I got the Crossroads boxset, and that guitar riff was so familiar.

    Yeah, that's kinda what happened for me, only I saw this Clapton concert on MTV a couple years before Crossroads came out, same show as the video I posted, actually. And I was totally floored when I heard that riff! I thought, "Wait, that's the theme from Not Necessarily The News!". You usually didn't hear rock music being used that way on TV back in the 80's, but there you have it!

    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    Are we counting steel guitar? 'Cause otherwise I got nothing. OK scratch that- how about George Harrison (and Pete Ham??)- playing with Badfinger on Day after Day.

    If you mean the Clapton clip, no, it's Jamie Oldaker. But I believe Jeff may have played on a couple tracks on Behind The Sun (the ones that Larry Waronker made Clapton record in LA because "there's no singles here").

    Here's a cool Ry Cooder video I found on Youtube. Check out that Sonic Blue Strat he's playing. It has a factory stock matching headstock and cream fingerboard binding, ie very rare instrument:
