From John Mayall, Cream and Blind Faith to Derek and the Dominoes and numerous superb solo efforts, Clapton is the soundtrack of our lives for the rock and roll generation that came of age in the 1960s and 1970s. The Sunday night show, a follow-up to a Friday’s performance, included standout performances by Doyle Bramhall II, John Mayer, Derek Trucks and Jimmie Vaughan. ...Read More »

After the show, Walter took Norman to the West End, where Norman marveled at the broad beer selection. As they slowly worked their way through a small percentage of the fifty-plus on offer, Walter lamented how inferior college was making him feel.

"Screw that," rejoined Norman. "Just have fun and keep learning and next year's freshmen will feel inferior to you. If you already knew everything, you wouldn't have to go to college in the first place. Don't tell me about that, tell me about all the cool stuff you've been doing."
