  1. Black Crowes do a killer version of this on Warpaint

  2. I did a little digging and found out his name – Tim Colwell. He lives in Nashville and is in the Rockabilly hall of fame in Jackson Tennessee.

  3. Found someone else with the paisley Tele:


  4. I thought about doing that acoustic version instead, but I was in the mood to play the Tele.

  5. Wow Thanks! What a piece of history. And I always get happy when I see a new video with Clapton playing a Gibson. I like the Live version in 1969 on BBC Four too. A lovely acoustic version.

  6. It is a great live album. This version is actually from a different show on that tour, with George Harrison sitting in alongside Eric. There’s a video of that whole show on YouTube, with George playing his psychedelic Rocky Strat.

  7. Saaawheeeett!! From one of the most unusual collaborations in music history. I learned about D & B from their relationship with Leon Russell. Here’s a wild trivia bit for you – Bonnie once sat in with Ike and Tina Turner as a black woman! She put on makeup and pretended she was black. She was just a kid- I think only 15 or so when she did this. By the way, great job of this jewel. I may just have to learn this 😉

  8. Don’t know this tune but I liked it anyhow.

  9. you can do a campfire version of Your Mother Should Know – Beatles, please!
    Thank you! 🙂

  10. Mmmmm. Can’t wait til I finish building my Telepartscaster and can try this tasty single coil number. thnx

  11. How about a Tribute on Alvin Lee and Ten Years After?

  12. The Black Crowes do a great version of this song, you should check it out.

  13. I was already 41 by the time I had ever even heard of Delaney and Bonnie. Man, i was so disappointed it took so long, but so grateful for youtube to be the perfect portal to that party place.
