Often credited as being one of the all-time greatest guitarists, and known amongst his peers as one of the all-time greatest collaborators. The ultimate Clapton collaboration took place on June 26, 2010 at Chicago's Toyota Park. For one day only, Clapton gathered the past, present, and future of guitar music onto one stage for an incredible all-day musical event in front of a crowd of over 27,000. The third Crossroads Guitar Festival was a sold out, 11-hour tour de force with all profits benefiting The Crossroads Centre in Antigua, a treatment and education facility founded by Clapton for chemically dependent persons.
Rhino Entertainment captured every epic note from that blistering summer day in Chicago, and has released over 4 hours of footage in High Definition on 'CROSSROADS GUITAR FESTIVAL 2010.' Fans around the world will have a chance to experience many of the festival's greatest moments, including performances by Eric Clapton, ZZ Top, Steve Winwood, BB King, Jeff Beck, Sheryl Crow, Buddy Guy and many others, as well as behind-the-scenes footage and candid interviews with the performers.
Another good Crossroads Guitar Festival with great artists playing some good songs. With that point in mind I thought some of the song choices were disappointing and I would have liked to have heard Jonny Lang solo and some others solo instead of as a grouping. It's a good DVD, but not a great DVD.
After buying the first two Crossroads Concerts, I knew this one would also be worthy. The talent exhibited by the artists that Clapton personally invites is always a showcase of some of the best guitar players from the Blues, Rock,Jazz and Country genres. Each artist has an adequate time slot to play and sing what made them popular, and they never seem to disappoint. It's a little sad to see that Hubert Sunderlain is reaching the age where he needs oxygen on stage and even he will acknowledge that his guitar prowess is not what it used to be, but symbolically he represents the players that inspired Clapton to greatness. The finale of the concert is when all the players take the stage at the same time and the viewer has a chance to reflect on all the great players.
I thought this would be an Eric Clapton concert and it wasn't. Should be titled, "Blues Festival" or something instead. I didn't see what I expected to see so I was disappointed.
I LIKED THIS CONCERT BETTER THAN THE FIRST ONE. I LIKE THE LINE-UP ON THIS CONCERT ALOT !! I DIDDN'T USE THE SKIP BUTTON AT ALL ON THIS SHOW !! I REALLY LOVE THE BLUES, ESPECIALLY LIVE AND JAMMIN' LIKE THIS CONCERT DOES !! I WAS GLAD I GOT THIS DVD !! IT'S GOOD TO SEE OUR BLUES LEDGENDS PLAY LIVE WHILE WEVE STILL GOT THEM AROUND TO LEARN FROM AND ENJOY. : )
