And be sure to check out this sweet vid from the night before (5/12) with Derek rippin’ up Jessica:

But let’s keep things bipartisan here on Welcome To Now and give Warren his too. Dig this Rockin’ Horse w/ Warren on lead and vocals, also from 5/12:

Guitar Gods

Let’s give a nod to some of the greatest guitar players of our time: First, more from the L.A. Forum where the Dead layed down a solid showing last night. In this bootleg, Eric Clapton performs with Joe Cocker, Carlos Santana, and Keith Moon. This is a widely circulated and revered bootleg and is a must have for all collectors.

In this vid, Eric Clapton teams up with Jeff Beck for a blazing take of Sly and the Family Stone’s ‘I Want to Take You Higher’ at the Saitama Super Arena, Japan. They nail’ it – I’m amazed at Clapton’s guitar playing – he maintains a level of technical expertise unlike so many of the greats from his generation. Clapton is a true master of the trade:

Next Santana and Derek Trucks rip up the classic ‘Get out my Life Woman’, with a nice ‘Who Knows’ (Hendrix) tease thrown in for good measure. Santana goes fuckin’ nuts around the 6:00 minute mark – and I LIKE it! Derek Trucks stands up to the test and lays down some monster licks himself:

It wouldn’t be a guitar gods exhibit without Trey, so, check out this beautiful and euphoric Trey Anastasio Band performance from Bonnaroo 2002, Trey’s first time at Bonnaroo. This is the peak of Trey’s solo band career, a magical moment no doubt for band and audience alike. Trey is on top of his game, and the power of his 15 piece band is unbelieveable:

Lastly, Jimi Hendrix welcomes Jim Morrison as a special guest. Hendrix’s guitar playing is top notch and Morrison is clearly extremely intoxicated. All in all, quite an amusing and fun show:
