The definite highlight for me was watching the great GARY MOORE walk out on stage and show everybody who the most criminally overlooked blues-rock guitarist in the world is! Moore makes the most of his brief slot with a powerhouse version of "Red House" that simply blows Jimi Hendrix's recording right out of the water. Gary calmly takes the stage, greets the audience politely, and then proceeds to TEAR IT UP with an electrifying performance that only Stevie Ray Vaughan could have matched! You can hear the crowd roar their approval during Gary's SCORCHING extended solo, and he ends the song to a well-deserved standing ovation.
Some have asked why Eric Clapton did not show up for this concert. I ask why Gary Moore was never invited to Clapton's Crossroads festival the same year this show was filmed???Read more ›
For me, the whole reason to buy this DVD is David Gilmour, who took the stage to a standing ovation. The crowd was not disappointed.Read more ›
The rest is pretty tepid and the roster features some no-name talent that have NO Business being on that stage: Theresa Andersson!? Who? Yeah, she plays guitar, but she's a rhythm player. Jamie Cullum?! Who?! Nobody in his band even PLAYS guitar! What were these producers even thinking putting a keyboard band like this on the bill, LET ALONE the video? Amy Winehouse?! Who? She's a weak singer that can barely hold her own on Karoake Night at Billy Bob's BBQ-O-Rama and would got stomped by "American Idol's" Simon.
A few other fret-grinders play well: Hank Marvin (great version of "Sleepwalk"), Albert Lee, and Brian May. Paul Rodgers is in excellent voice. Joe Walsh slogs through four tunes, but his playing here cannot hold a candle to his monumental performance on Clapton's "Crossroad" Guitar concert DVD. He looks very tired and shagged out.
The All-Star jam at the end is awful, mostly because they chose a poor vehicle for guitar soloing, Rod Stewart's "Stay With Me."
Where were the rest of the Stratocaster greats? Ever hear of a guy named Eric Clapton? Fender even sells a Clapton Strat model. If I am organizing this show, I organize it around Clapton's schedule and I don't do it without him!Read more ›
