Music that moves us.

30 Years ago today…

3638527Eric Clapton and Patti Boyd threw a party at their home in Surrey to celebrate their recent nuptials. An impromptu jam session broke out with their guests: Mick Jagger, Clapton, Paul McCartney, Ron Wood, Ringo Starr, Jack Bruce, Bill Wyman, George Harrison and Ginger Baker. The hastily assembled supergroup ran through several Eddie Cochran and Little Richard songs. In Clapton’s autobiography he recalls that when the party was over, he and Patti went to retire, only to find Mick and Jerry Hall were already in their bed.

The invitations read:

HELLO

Me and the Mrs. got married the other day, but that was in America, so we’ve decided to have a bash in my garden on Saturday May 19th about 3.00 p.m. for all out mates here at home, if you are free, try and and make it, it’s bound to be a laugh …..see you then…..
