Eric Clapton blew through ‘Cocaine’ at his 70th Birthday Concert in London
To celebrate his 70th birthday, actual Guitar Hero Eric Clapton performed a string of dates at Royal Albert Hall in London and had a camera crew document the experience for a special that’s coming in November. Until we get to see the full concert, we can enjoy a hell of a
drug preview with his updated rendition of “Cocaine”. Check it out below, and appreciate the OGs always.
Slowhand at 70 – Live at the Royal Albert Hall will be released in a variety of formats including a digital copy of the concert film, a 2-CD/Blu-ray combo, a 3-LP/DVD combo and a deluxe edition. Clapton’s 17-track setlist spanned nearly the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer’s entire career, from Derek & the Dominoes (“Layla”) to Blind Faith (“Can’t Find My Way Home”) to his solo hits (“Wonderful Tonight,” “Tears in Heaven”). The album also boasts Clapton’s covers of the Wailers’ “I Shot the Sheriff,” Robert Johnson’s “Crossroads” and Joe Cocker’s “High Time We Went.”
