Eric Clapton and Van Morrison emerged from the 1960s British Invasion to become two of the most significant artists of modern times. Ranked the #2 guitarist of all time by Rolling Stone, Clapton’s hit songs with The Yardbirds, Cream, and Blind Faith were soon joined by “Layla,” “Tears In Heaven” and “Wonderful Tonight” as a solo, while Van Morrison brought his blues-jazz groove to the classics “Gloria,” “Moondance,” “Brown-Eyed Girl” and “Have I Told You Lately That I Love You” as one of most unique vocalists of our time.
Join Rod MacDonald & the Humdingers for a fun and low-decibel tour through the lives and timeless music of these unique artists, as told in their songs.
