Gary Clark Jr. On Jamming With Clapton, His New Beatles Cover
"Sonny Boy Slim" himself riffs on what he learned by sharing the stage with Eric Clapton and his Beatles cover collaboration with Junkie XL.
In this exclusive GRAMMY.com interview, Gary Clark Jr. riffs on what he learned sharing the stage with his heroes Eric Clapton and Jimmie Vaughan. The GRAMMY-winning singer/songwriter also reveals how his collaboration with Junkie XL on a recent Beatles cover song "came together."
"Man, to be up there on stage with Jimmie Vaughan and Eric Clapton, going back and forth, sharing solos, it's amazing," says Clark. "It's also intimidating. I'm not as smooth or disciplined as a guitar player so I kind of gotta watch myself and not get a little bit too excited."
