On March 19, 2009, Eric Clapton played with the Allman Brothers for the first time as they wrapped up their 40th Anniversary Shows at The Beacon in NYC. Eric showed up to pay tribute to his late friend Daune Allman who played with Eric in Derek And The Dominos. The set on the first of two nights included "Key To The Highway,” , “Dreams,” “Little Wing” and Derek and the Dominos’ “Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad?”, “Anyday” and “Layla.” According to the book "One Way out: The History Of The Allman Brothers", Derek Trucks said after the show Clapton told him he hadn't played that way since 1969. Here are more details about those two magical nights at the Beacon. I was lucky enough to see Clapton play with the Allman Brothers on several occasions at Eric's famous "Crossroads Guitar Festivals".
