Biography

Delaney, Bonnie & Friends was a group started by Delaney and Bonnie Bramlett, which featured artists such as Eric Clapton, Carl Radle, Bobby Whitlock and Jim Gordon. After Delaney, Bonnie & Friends, they would form the group Derek and the Dominos.
After a stint in the United States Navy, Bramlett moved to Los Angeles, California in the 1960s.[2] There he established himself as a singer-songwriter, writing with fellow musicians Joey Cooper, Mac Davis and Jackie DeShannon. Bramlett also became a regular on the television show Shindig! as a member of the show’s house band, the Shindogs. During this time, he also worked with J.J. Cale, who was his first guitar player, and Leon Russell and released some unsuccessful solo singles.Bramlett’s career spanned four decades.
Over the years, some of his songs have reached “standard” status such as “Superstar”[3], which he co-wrote with Leon Russell and his first wife, Bonnie Bramlett[4]. It was recorded in 2006 by Usher, and in the past by Luther Vandross, The Carpenters, Sonic Youth (this version was on the #1 Billboard soundtrack from the movie Juno[5]) and many others; and “Never Ending Song of Love” (which is on the soundtrack of RV and A Good Year.[5]) In addition, Delaney co-wrote “Let It Rain”,[6] which was recorded by Eric Clapton.
Eric Clapton joined Delaney, Bonnie & Friends on tour in the early 1970s, after which Delaney produced and co-wrote songs for Clapton’s debut solo album, Eric Clapton. Clapton still credits Delaney for pushing him to sing and teaching him the art.[7] Bramlett produced King Curtis’ last LP[8], which had two hit singles: “Teasin’” and “Lonesome Long Way from Home”.

    Critics love The Band (& they were good) but these 2 had an enormous impact on American roots revival, if for no other reason than for all of the musicians who played with them at 1 time or another

    Always a favorite of mine. I saw them perform in a community athletic center the day Hendrix died [no chairs. we sat, stood and danced on a concrete floor]. They dedicated the concert to him and then blew the house down! One of the best concerts that I have ever seen.

    What was the name of the documentary? It sounds like one to catch. I think D&B need more love, they are pretty cool, and they did have an immense influence on Clapton, especially with his singing.

    I saw an eric clapton documentary a while back and they showed D&B playing with clapton on an old tv show and the song they played was amazing...but I can't remember anything about the song (other than it was good)...did anyone see the show? does anyone know the song? does anyone know what I'm wittering on about?
