Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck have sat down with Rolling Stone’s David Fricke for their first joint interview to settle the eternal debate: who’s the best guitarist of all time? In the wide-ranging interview, they speak of their blues heroes, Jimi Hendrix, their concerts together and their craft. You can take a sneak peek inside the cover story at Rolling Stone. Eric also told Fricke he has a new album in the works, possibly titled Whiplash saying “I covered anything I ever longed to do,” he says. The cover photo was shot in Sussex, England right at the beginning of the New Year, on 4 January. The issue (RS1099) is on news stands now.
Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck headline at Madison Square Garden on 18 and 19 February before heading to Toronto and Montreal for the two final shows of their mini-tour.
