I've been an Eric Clapton fan since I was 12. He kicked off his 2014 US tour Sunday at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. I was in attendance, accompanied by two longtime friends with whom I've attended Clapton concerts before. "Slowhand" concerts are a VERY special experience for me. I've had the opportunity to share them with some people very special to me, both of my children, my brother, two past girlfriends, and my buddies with whom I hung on Sunday.
