Quick! What do you call a band with a Beatle, Clapton, a member of Traffic, the rhythm section of Derek & The Dominoes, Stax horns with Delaney & Bonnie Bramlett? Delaney & Bonnie & Friends, of course. Taken from 12/1/69.
The kid from Queens turns 68 today. The accolades are many, as is my respect for the guy, truly a living legend. I did find the interview that Steve Berlin of Los Lobos gave awhile back kind of interesting. He totally throws Mr. Brickell under the bus. Click here to check it out. It’s worth a read. Here are a couple of Paul vids to entertain you. “Late In The Evening” from 1980:
“Here Comes The Sun” with George Harrison from SNL ’76.
“Homeward Bound” from Monterey ’67:
And what talented friends they are! Featured here are Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Steve Cropper, Dave Mason, Rita Coolidge, etc., etc. Do they look like they’re having fun or what?

i don’t want to do it
if not for you
while my guitar gently weeps
all things must pass

Eric 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:

Question: What groupie of the 1970’s lost her virginity to Eric Clapton, had affairs with John Lennon, George Harrison, Jimmy Page and married a Rolling Stone? 5….4….3….2….1….. Give up?
Answer: Krissy Wood. Apparently she met Ron Wood when he was still a member of the Small Faces and married him in 1971. Wood soon became a member of the Stones and wrote the songs (with Keith Richards) “Breathe On Me” and “Mystifies Me” in her honor. She had an affair with Lennon while he was married to Yoko (mid-’73), an affair with Harrison after travelling with him to visit Salvador Dali (early ’73) while he was still married to Patti and an affair with Jimmy Page in the summer of ’74. All occured while she was still married to Ron Wood.
