Hi, remember me?

I'm that girl that neglected her blog because her classes have been neglecting her.
My bad, guys. My bad.

I'm back. Now that all the Grammy nonsense (and that really awk Taylor Swift/Stevie Nicks duet) is over with, let's talk about some news that dropped today... Crossroads Fest 2010!!!!
You guys have to check out that link. This is Eric Clapton's massive gathering of the best guitarists for a huge one day festival. This year it's June 26th (my brother's birthday!) and the lineup is out of this world. Seriously, all of you guys that live in Chicago/are going to go, I'm so jealous.

Extra noteworthy:
-Allman Brothers (!!!!!!!!!!!!)
-BB King
-Jeff Beck
-Clapton himself
-Steve Winwood
-ZZ Top

(I'll just close my eyes when John Mayer approaches the mic because I cannot stand that guy.)

This concert benefits Clapton's addiction treatment center in Antigua-- Crossroads Centre. If you haven't read Clapton's autobio, go pick it up. It's seriously fantastic and he talks about the Crossroads Centre.
Want to relive the power of Clapton & Winwood? Go here to watch some vids and get a recap.

What other guitarist(s) would you like to see at the festival?
For me: DAVID GILMOUR!!!!!! Jimmy Page? Santana?

I'd like to see the ghost of Roy Buchannan, one of the greatest guitarists ever. And I'm with you on John Mayer.
