Eric Clapton will be a guest on the 12th annual Jools Holland Hootenany television show, which will air on New Year’s Eve.
The show was recorded at the BBC studios on 16 December 2004 before a live audience. Eric performed “Stop Breakinâ€™ Down Blues” and a blistering version of “Little Queen Of Spades” from his recent Robert Johnson album. His backing band for the evening was the Jools Holland Rhythm and Blues Orchestra.
In addition to performing, Eric gave a short interview and was asked if the speculated Cream reunion would happen in 2005. He responded “maybe” and joked that the band might split up again before a reunion could happen!
Other guests on the show included Amy Winehouse, Franz Ferdinand, Paul Carrack, Mavis Staples, Natasha Bedingfield and Ian Hunter.
