Concert #25 - Eric Clapton at the Forum (April 14, 1987)

I can confirm: Eric Clapton is indeed God. He came out with small band of heavy-hitters: Phil Collins on drums, keyboardist Greg Phillinganes and Nathan East on bass. Phil was just that, a low-profile drummer. They played lots of well-known songs, such as "Crossroads", "I Shot The Sheriff", "Layla", "Let It Rain", and others I don't remember.

Robert Cray was the show opener. Very good set. Great vocals, great guitar playing and the crowd loved him.

By the way, Eric was 47 years old, Robert Cray only 33.
