Buddy Guy Pays Tribute To Eric Clapton At Crossroads All-Star Jam
Guy ended an 11-hour show at Toyota Park, where 28,000 music fans caught performances by Clapton, Guy, B.B. King, John Mayer and Jeff Beck, among other guitar greats.
And Guy summed up the occasion when he paid tribute to Clapton, stating, "What a wonderful job this man has done. If we had more people in this world like him, it would be a better place."
The concert was staged to raise funds for Clapton's Crossroads center rehabilitation clinic in Antigua.
Clapton also had a tribute planned - he remembered late pal George Harrison by performing the late Beatle's Isn't It A Pity, and saluted Bo Diddley's recovery from a recent stroke with a version of the bluesman's Who Do You Love.
Other highlights included Clapton jams with Robbie Robertson and his former Blind Faith bandmate Steve Winwood, who Clapton said he'd been "waiting to play with for 25 years."
The concert started on a funny note when host Bill Murray attempted to play Gloria.
Other acts to perform at the star-studded show included Clapton's one-time lover Sheryl Crow, Albert Lee and country stars Alison Krauss, Vince Gill and Willie Nelson.
