On Aug. 26, 1970, The Allman Brothers Band was playing a concert at the Miami Beach Convention Center.
During the same time, Eric Clapton was in Miami recording his new project Derek and the Dominos.
Clapton decided to catch the ABB. After the show, Eric and Duane Allman started talking and Eric invited invited Duane to come to Criteria Studios, were he was recording at.
Allman was happy just to observe, but Clapton insisted he grab his guitar and play.
The sessions began that very night where they reportedly jammed until the next evening.
It stands to this day as one of the most famous collaborations in Rock and Roll history.
Think "Layla"!!!!! 46 years ago today.
On Aug. 26, 1990, Eric Clapton headlined a second night in concert at Alpine Valley Music Theater in East Troy, WI. Also on the bill that night was Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble and Robert Cray.
For Clapton's encore, he said he was bringing out the best guitar players in the world. Eric was joined by Stevie, Robert Cray, Buddy Guy & Jimmy Vaughn.
People who were there said it was an incredible encore. It would prove to be historic.
It was the last time Stevie Ray Vaughn would ever be on stage.
