Crossroads Guitar Festival 2010


A packed finale stage: (left to right) Derek Trucks, Warren Haynes, James Burton, Joe Bonamassa,
Jimmie Vaughan, Susan Tedeschi, Eric Clapton, Keb’ Mo’ (background), Buddy Guy, Johnny Winter,
Robert Cray, B.B. King, Jonny Lang, Ronnie Wood, Hubert Sumlin, Steve Winwood, Vince Gill,
Sonny Landreth, Cesar Rosas, Robert Randolph, and David Hidalgo.


Sheryl Crow, Doyle Bramhall II, bassist Tommy Sims, and Gary Clark Jr. welcome surprise-guest
Eric Clapton for a tune during their mid-day set.


Jonny Lang, Buddy Guy, and Ronnie Wood laugh their way offstage following a great
cross-generational performance.


After his set had already ended, Eric Clapton returns to the stage with Jimmie Vaughan (not pictured)
and Robert Cray before being joined by the legendary B.B. King.


Eric Clapton plays a daphne blue signature Strat through a tweed Fender ’57 Twin-Amp
reissue for his 90-minute set.


John Mayer’s Dumble Steel String Singer and Two-Rock John Mayer Signature heads.


Susan Tedeschi—one of only two featured female performers at Crossroads (Sheryl Crow was the other).


Jimmie Vaughan, Robert Cray, Eric Clapton, and B.B. King play an extended set before the finale, with
much of the time going to King’s jokes and stories.


Jeff Beck’s amps: two Fender Pro Juniors and a Marshall JCM 2000
Super Lead powering two Marshall 4x12 cabs.


Beck plays his Olympic White signature Stratocaster during his solo set.


Bill Murray (right) reprises his host role, alternating between hilarious and
thankful, much to Clapton’s amusement.


ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons (left) plays his Gretsch Billy Bo Jupiter for a hard-rocking set before the
band leaves for Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where they play Summerfest.


Derek Trucks’ amps, two PRS Dallas heads on top of a PRS 4x12 cabinet (left), and
Warren Haynes’ César Diaz CD-100 and Soldano SLO-100 heads atop a 4x12 (center).
