The Albert Hall dust up continues. Here’s some comments from our membership plus a fantastic photo courtesy Martina Weselowski (Eric wearing a red polo shirt fashion lovers!!). And on the subject of photos, we love pictures of Eric of course but would also appreciate some individual shots of the band members too – we’ve interviewed Paul Carrack recently and need some good live shots to feature in Where’s Eric!
Ken Norris commented:
Tonight’s show was a good, solid one. The electric sets were strong, the unplugged set perhaps a tad too predictable. Highlights for me were Gotta Get Over (now being played with great ease, like it’s been part of the setlist for years), an extremely energetic Got To Get Better In A Little While, a lovely Come Rain or Come Shine (with nice shared vocals between EC and Paul Carrack, and some great guitar interplay between EC and Doyle), a brisk Blues Power, and a Little Queen of Spades for which EC’s solo at the end was worth the price of admission. Gary Clark Jr. entered the encore at the end of Sunshine for Your Love and stayed on through the end, taking a bow with the EC band. His opening set was impressive and certainly appreciated by the RAH crowd.
Lawrence from Cheshire added:
Firstly, I must say how impressed I was with the support Gary Clark Jnr. This was a real treat and he is one of the best younger blues Guitarists I have heard. an amazing talent. I think everyone is charmed by Eric’s personally understated modesty. He comes on stage in denims and a sports shirt and says very little but proceeds to play guitar in his effortless style which is basically as
good as it gets. His complete mastery of this instrument my never be surpassed. After all, he has been at the top of his game for 50 years.
Ann Crick from North London:
A great band, the present line-up really work well together and they were clearly relaxed and enjoying themselves, and the new additions to the band are a good choice. As others have noted, Eric seems to be taking more of a back seat at times, with Doyle in particular often taking the lead (not that I’m complaining – I’ve become a huge Doyle fan).
