Delaney and Bonnie and Friends

Delaney and Bonnie and Friends

To get away from the hype surrounding Blind Faith during their only U.S. Tour, Eric Clapton started hanging out with the support act, Delaney and Bonnie and Friends. The band was fronted by the husband and wife team of Delaney and Bonnie Bramlett. When Blind Faith faded away after less than a year, Eric Clapton went on to a short tenure with the Friends.

During Eric’s time with Delaney and Bonnie and Friends, the lineup was:

Delaney Bramlett – guitar, vocals
Bonnie Bramlett – vocals

Eric Clapton – guitar, vocals
Dave Mason – guitar
Jim Gordon – drums
Carl Radle – bass
Bobby Whitlock – organ, vocals
Jim Price – trumpet
Bobby Keys – sax
Rita Coolidge – vocals
Tex Johnson – percussion
George Harrison – guitar (live performances only)

Where’s Eric!
