No, its not Spinal Tap shenanigans, its Eric Claptons Crossroads Guitar Festival, which brings three legendary guitars from Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan to Toyota Park in Chicago tomorrow (July 28).
According to Michael Doyle, vice president of product marketing for Guitar Center, the three axes Claptons famous Blackie, and Gibson 335, and Vaughans Lenny are more than just music makers.
Doyle says, We paid close to $1 million for each, and its only the third time theyve ever been on display. Blackie is the most famous guitar in the world.
But dont hold your breath to hear any screeching solos coming from these classic axes.
Doyle says, We own the guitars, but they belong emotionally to Eric and Stevie. These guitars are priceless theyre not for touching.
