Keith Richards on Stage with Clapton
Keith Richards joined Eric Clapton at the fourth installment of Clapton’s Crossroads Festival. The festival, which took place over the past weekend at New York City’s Madison Square Garden featured a wide range of blues artists, ranging from old timers like Buddy Guy to the younger generation, like Gary Clark Jr., and John Mayer.
Richards joined Clapton on stage during the Saturday night (April 13) performance for the songs “Key to the Highway,” and “Sweet Little Rock & Roller.” According to Billboard, Richards addressed the audience before the latter song, saying “Now we're gonna rock it up.” One can imagine that Richards wanted to get a little stage time before the Rolling Stones kick of their “50 & Counting” tour in a few weeks. If you missed the Crossroads festival this time around, it will be back, as Clapton announced before leaving the stage Saturday: “See you in three years.”
