One thought on “Eric Clapton & Bob Dylan Performing Together – Happy Birthday Eric Clapton

  1. I’m always amazed how Bob acts in so many of these moments as if he’s just working — you know, showing up for a gig and punching in. It takes more than a minute into Crossroads before a hint of a smile emerges on his face, while I’m pretty sure anyone and everyone else is grinning ear to ear.
