    I'm kind of new to Eric Clapton -- I spent a lot of years thinking he was way overrated but when I really sat down and listened to some of his stuff, I really enjoyed it.

    I recently discovered his album "No Reason To Cry" from 1976 and it looks like Ron Wood (Rolling Stones/Faces) is credited on it. There don't seem to be individual song credits on the sleeve (at least so far as I can tell) but anybody have an idea of what song(s) he played on from that album? Woody seems to add a real fun vibe to the projects he guests on.

    I'm not familiar with the album, but I've become a big fan of Ronnie's work across the board. I have a Faces station on Pandora that I listen to all the time. He was a great choice for the Stones, but he cut some really amazing tracks through the years before he landed with them.

    Not sure. But I love them both so I thought I should give this thread a bump.
    I “got” Clapton very early in my musical development. I started playing at 11 years old. Really got into Clapton at 15 or 16.

    Probably wherever there is steel, or chunky rhythm or riff counterpoint. It's kind of his thing, isn't it?

    I'm a big fan but he's such a chameleon I'm not sure I can pick him out.

    "Beautiful Thing" written by Richard Manuel and Rick Danko is a meandering composition with Clapton and Wood exchanging languid guitar licks. Clapton's voice sounds nasal and thin but the backing vocals by Marcy Levy and Yvonne Elliman are surprisingly strong.

    "All Our Past Times" written by Clapton and Rick Danko is a looping country rock track with a catchy chorus and guitar exchanges between Clapton and Wood similar to the opening cut.

    "Hello Old Friend" written by Clapton is an infectious track with nice vocals, a strong chorus and very fine guitar work by Jesse Ed Davis.

    100%. Woody is amazing. I love his feel on guitar and overall vibe.

    That is true. He can blend in really well, although he has a certain tone when he plays and a feel that's almost kinda sloppy but actually in the pocket (not unlike Keith).

    Those British blues rockers perfected the rhythm/lead playing style. Keep the rhythm going the whole time with perfect hammer-on riffs and short runs that sounds like two guys playing.

    Woody's comical persona hides a guy w/ a deep appreciation for early American Soul/R&B.
    Love the videos of New Barbarians.
    And what a voice - ;) - better than Jeff Beck. . .:lol:

    Peace - Deeve
