Side Tracks

Here's Eric Clapton at a concert in Hyde Park in 1996 with a nice version of "Badge":

Changing a little bit, here's Karla Bonoff with Linda Ronstadt, complete with a vocal mistake at the beginning and a lead guitarist with his volume turned way down--but the singing is definitely real.

Badge is my favorite Clapton tune, even to this day. Even though Harrison's signature is all over it, Eric clearly made it his own.

I think Clapton is the greatest rock guitarist of all time, except for Hendrix.

Good pick.

Yep, I've always thought of it as a tribute to the Beatles, done well.
I like a few other Clapton songs better but this version is right up there in my book.
