The band was large, the music was good, but I'd like to have seen a bit more soloing from Eric. If you really want to see him shine go get the Cream, live at Royal Albert Hall reunion DVD that they did in 2005. For a band comprised of only three 60 year olds that was mind blowing.
I'm probably not telling you anything you don't already know, but just in case . . .

Derek Trucks has played with the Allman Brothers Band from time to time. I think he also has his own band. Not sure exactly what he's doing these days. His uncle is Butch Trucks -- drummer for the Allman Brothers Band. Ahhh . . . Southern rock.
