Clapton in Toronto

from multiple reviewers


Eric Clapton played the fifth stop on his world tour in Toronto last night. By all accounts, the only drawback was the freezing temperatures in the outdoor arena. Here are reviews from the Toronto Star, Globe and Mail, and the Toronto Sun.

Another YouTube Guitar Phenom

from YouTube


Maxwell82 -- or Yuksel from Switzerland, as his profile says -- has garnered some attention on YouTube for his four-part acoustic guitar arrangements. Most popular is his take on the theme from Last of the Mohicans; most recent is his rendition of the 16th century tune, "Pastime with Good Company." We have much respect for the amount of time it took to make these videos!

Richie Sambora Offers Lessons to Becks

from Hollyscoop


Richie Sambora likes to keep his name in the news. This time, the Bon Jovi guitarist has offered to teach his friend David Beckham to play guitar. No word on whether the soccer player (or footballer, for the rest of the globe) has accepted. Wonder if this would count as community service?
