Eric Clapton
in the 1980's

The slow comeback to serious playing started after the dry-up in 1982. There's lots of beautiful guitar already on Milano 1984 show and on Roger Waters' gigs during summer of 1984. In Stockholm 1984 Clapton played Gibson Les Paul through a Marshall amp all the way through the concert (I was there :)) and "God was back". Anyway, lots of great gigs here, many even in soundboard quality. My favorites are at the moment: Milano 1984 (superb guitar playing), Ringtrick (great sound).
Still looking for Helsinki Messukeskus 1980 and Jäähalli 1981
