So, I picked up the “Crossroads Guitar Festival: 2007” DVD the other day, but didn’t watch it til Saturday night and I have to say, it was well worth the $$.
Eric Clapton brought together the best guitar players around for this 2 day music festival to benefit the Crossroads Centre located in Antigua. B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Jeff Beck, John Mayer, Robert Cray, Robbie Robertson, Sheryl Crow, Derek Trucks, Steve Winwood, Susan Tedeschi – the list goes on and on. It is by far one of the best concert DVD’s I’ve seen so far and it made me wish I could’ve been there in person.
Shot in Chicago in 2007, you get 38 tracks and 4 hours worth of some of the best blues, rock, jazz and country music you could ever want. I highly recommend this DVD. As an added bonus, proceeds from sales benefit the Crossroads Centre in Antigua, a chemical dependency treatment and education facility Clapton founded in 1987 to help people kick their addictions.
From the festival’s website:
“Founded in 1997, Crossroads Centre, Antigua was created to provide treatment and education to chemically dependent persons, those with other compulsive addictive behaviors, their families and significant others. Treatment is provided through residential care, family and aftercare programs. The pathway to recovery is founded on the movement toward a change in lifestyle. Crossroads Centre, Antigua also operates a 16 bed halfway-house called The Bevon House (exclusively for local Antiguan residents) and facilitates a school-based education series, Breaking the Cycle, in all local schools.”
