It’s becoming increasingly rare to see rock n’ roll legends share the same stage, so when it does happen you really should take the time to appreciate it.
With over 100 years of guitar-playing experience between them, Keith Richards and Eric Clapton played a few numbers at a memorial benefit concert over the weekend in New York City.
The concert was called Howlin For Hubert: A Concert to Benefit the Jazz Foundation of America.
Hubert Sumlin was a blues guitarist who passed away in early December due to heart failure.
Sumlin thought of the idea while he was still alive as a way to mark his 80th birthday. Although he wasn’t able to attend the show, he was still there in spirit.
Keith Richards and Eric Clapton were just two of the many rock all stars in attendance. The performers included Buddy Guy, Billy Gibbons, Warren Haynes, Jimmie Vaughan, Derek Trucks and Elvis Costello among others.
However, it was Keith and Eric’s performance that drew the most notoriety and we have the video for you right here!
