Check Out Clapton’s Guitars at Crossroads
Some pretty valuable guitars will be on display at Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival this weekend in New York.
The Road to Crossroads Exhibition will include Clapton’s famous Fender Stratocasters “Blackie” and “Brownie,” his early cherry red Gibson ES-335 and Stevie Ray Vaughan’s Fender Strat “Lenny,” on loan from the Guitar Center Legends Collection and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The collection — which also includes items from previous Crossroads Festivals — will be displayed inside New York’s Madison Square Garden Friday and Saturday while the fest is going on.
Clapton wrapped up the North American leg of his tour Saturday night in Pittsburgh and joined his opening act The Wallflowers during their set to perform a cover of The Band’s “The Weight.”
