R.I.P. Delaney Bramlett

Singer-Songwriter and Slide Guitarist Dies at 69.

New York Times.

Oh no. I had been listening to my Delaney and Bonnie albums again the past few years, with incredible enjoyment, especially 1971’s Motel Shot (look at these “& Friends” in “Delaney and Bonnie & Friends”: Duane Allman – guitar; Joe Cocker – vocals; Kenny Gradney – bass; John Hartford – banjo, fiddle; Eddie James – guitar; Jim Keltner – drums; Bobby Keys – saxophone; Dave Mason – guitar; Gram Parsons – guitar, vocals; Carl Radle – bass; Leon Russell – piano, keyboards; Clarence White – guitar, vocals; Bobby Whitlock – vocals!!) and the 1970 live on tour disc with Eric Clapton (who joined their band after they opened for Blind Faith and he felt they blew Blind Faith away). They are in heavy rotation in my iTunes library. I’m deeply saddened to hear this.

One thought on “R.I.P. Delaney Bramlett

  1. “On Tour with Eric Clapton” is flat out one of the greatest live albums ever, right up there with the Stones’ “Get Yer Ya-Ya’s Out.” Both albums are on my long-distance-driving ipod playlist, and I never tire of listening to either one.
