DAMN! A brief tour of a few cities has been announced where Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck will be co-headlining. Clapton seems to have been having a bit of a resurgence with his live gigs since doing the Cream reunion. And his tour with Steve Winwood was pretty good. And Jeff Beck's been on a bit of a roll since he played the 2007 Crossroads Guitar Festival, and more recently playing at the 25th Anniversary Concert for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
When you add in the Yardbirds connection? These shows might be really, really cool. Especially if they can persuade the third Yardbirds guitarist of note, Jimmy Page, to make an appearance. I'm going to try to score tickets for the shows at Madison Square Garden. They'll also be playing Toronto, Montreal and London.
