Best Guitar Solos: Cream- Crossroads

20 of Eric Clapton's Best Guitar Solos | uDiscover – Megarock ...

I still remember the first time my parents played Cream for me. They had a best of Cream playing and the song “White Room” came on and I was hooked but, it wasn’t until a couple songs later that I became mesmerized and that was when “Crossroads” came on. Holy hell that song is spectacular. Everything about this song is perfect. Plus, Clapton’s solo on it, well, that’s a whole other league of its own. And on top of that, the fact that Cream was a three piece and they created a sound this huge, just goes to show how damn good they were. Check out Cream playing “Crossroads” from their Reunion show Live At Royal Albert Hall in 2005.
