Robbie Robertson / Eric Clapton collaboration update.

This was posted by a Band website Guest Book poster:



Found on the WEB Site of WGRF Buffalo - Longtime friends Eric Clapton and Robbie Robertson have told our 97 Rock reporters that they have started recording their first album together last month in London, and according to a source close to Robertson, it is "gong well." They've been working with drummer Ian Thomas and bass player Pino Palladino, both of whom will join Clapton on his North American spring tour, which starts Saturday in Tampa, Florida. Robertson will continue to work on the album, which will be all original material, and then get together with Clapton at the end of the summer. But be patient -- our source says, "They will take their time, and there is no release date or title."This collaboration with Robertson is another in a series of recent projects Clapton has undertaken with friends and past collaborators. Since 2000 he has recorded albums with B-B King and J-J Cale, reunited for seven shows with Cream, and performed with his former Blind Faith bandmate Steve Winwood this past February and last summer.
