On a hot August afternoon, the 9th, in 1975, my friend Dana asked if I wanted to see Eric Clapton at Frost Amphitheater on the campus of Stanford University. "Are you kidding me?" I responded. Naturally, we had great access in the pit below the stage, but not backstage as I was coming to accept as a given whenever Dana called. Regardless, it was a great show with Carlos Santana guesting on the Who's "Eyesight to the Blind" from Tommy. Bell bottom pants were certainly in style. Eric was in great spirits, and a bootleg cassette of the show reveals he was in terrific form as well. An all-time favorite concert for me.
