  • As one of the greatest guitarists of all time, it’s no surprise Clapton’s got a number of signature solos to his name. While he and Duane Allman made history with “Layla”’s signature sound, it’s with Cream’s “Crossroads” solo that he really nails it. In fact, this hard-rock arrangement of Robert Johnson’s original blues tune is so good we think Slowhand may have signed a deal with the Devil too. -- watchmojo
  • ♬♫♪◖(●◡●)◗♪♫♬ classic Slowhand
  • Great song but terrible quality
  • clapton is great but what a bass line
  • Live at Winterland. Must have been FANTASTIC!!
  • There isn't a comment thread in the universe that won't eventually degenerate into an atheism debate.
  • [track artist=The Head Cat]Crossroads[/track] great [tag]cover song[/tag] with [artist]Lemmy Kilmister[/artist] on vocals.
  • clapton said Duane Allman was the best he'd seen
  • This is like God coming down from heaven and saying "Eric Clapton, I am going to give you the best damn solo ever." <- that makes no sense, because 'god' doesn't exist. Clapton is God. Clapton gave us the solo from his fingers, so yes God gave us the solo but not some white guy with a beard who lives in the clouds (santa?)
