Peter Frampton gets a wish granted

It was the closing song on Peter Frampton’s set, where he stopped to do something that he had wanted to do for quite some time. He invited Eric Clapton onstage for a moment of electric guitar history and a run through George Harrison’s perennial guitar favorite from The White Album, which famously featured an uncredited Clapton on lead guitar.

The 2019 Crossroads Guitar Festival took place over the weekend of the 20-21 September and saw the likes of Billy Gibbons, Keb’ Mo’, Jeff Beck, John Mayer, Bonnie Raitt, and Derek Trucks perform. Peter Frampton is on his Farewell Tour in 2019 and though him and Clapton had known each other for a long time, they actually never played on stage together, until now.
