    I've seen him, and as much as I respect him, I really thought the gig was too 'clean' you know?

    think he means its just like watching him with his band, there is nothing special or shocking about it

    What I meant was, it was too rehearsed, too brushed off, overproduced so to say, but live.

    Then again, I'm mostly a Cream fan, so maybe I went to the concert with the wrong expectations..

    Clapton is touring with a new band which should be exciting. Gone is Nathan East, Steve Gadd, Andy Fairweather-Low, etc.

    His new band consists of:

    Willie Weeks/Bass
    Doyle Bramhall/guitar
    Derek Trucks/Guitar
    Steve Jordan/drums

    That's a killer lineup.

    I saw Clapton in 74 doing the 461 Ocean Blvd tour. Then again in 1998. He's great and getting better.
