I am just wondering what current music stars will still be drawing big crowds when they are in their mid 60's?

Hmmmm. Where's the music that's as influential now as Tommy was in 1969?

I just watched some old concert footage of theirs. There's a raw energy and verve that no one seems to have today, least of all the two surviving members.

Oh yeah, the drummer wasn't half bad either (Vinnie Colaiuta - I can never spell that right when I'm in a hurry)



I was a huge fan of Eric from the Cream through Blind Faith era, but time and gravity take their toll.

My point really was that Jeff was probably one if not the the only one of the "veterans" in the 2 hrs of the broadcast who have simply lost their edge with time. It was sad to see the physical condition to which Johnny Winter and BBK have deteriorated.



BTW a couple of years later Jeff B, Tal & VC recorded a concert at Ronnie Scott's club, it is on CD & DVD, you cab check it out here on youtube:

Jeff Beck live at Ronnie Scott's - Full show - YouTube


For my taste Clapton & Winwood playing together at Crossroads were dynamite as good/better than ever. I wish the version they did of "Can't Find My Way Home", with D Trucks and D Bramhill were on a CD somewhere, my favorite version of that classic.
