but it would still be great to see him before he dies.
Holy shit, he's not exactly elderly. In his sixties yeah, but not infirm.
I've seen Clapton play probably seven or eight times. He's a great player. The best concert I've seen him play was the one he did with Mark Knopfler on second guitar with him. Nothing but "hits" from beginning to end.
The show at HOB in the nineties was pretty damned good, too, as more of a blues show.
