Yup. I paid $30 and it was worth it.

Definately. Great DVD, it's well filmed and it has plenty of great performances. And it has Joe Walsh

Very good. I'm not really sure why Clapton invited Steve Vai to play, as he's so radically different from everyone else there, but his performance is great. As is Joe Walsh's.

That Steve Vai thing was one of the worst performances I've ever seen. He uses just about the worst tone a guitar can produce and just plays really fast. There's no rhythm or melody or anything. All and all a great DVD, you just have to skip a few things, like John Mayer and Santana.

For some reason Jeff Beck was in the intro and Billy Gibbons mentioned his name at the end, but he didn't have a song on the DVD.

Was Jeff Beck there and they just didn't put him in the DVD or something. Maybe Clapton didn't want to be shown up. He knows Beck's better.

I doubt that thats why Clapton didnt invite him.

On the DVD: I just saw john mayers preformance and was very suprised, hes actually very good.

The eric johnson and Santana preformances were also quite nice.

^^I was surprised (and fairly amazed) by how good John Mayer is on guitar. He's no Clapton, no Hendrix, no Santana, no Betts, but he's very good.

I can't really remember, although he was on for quite a while. David Hidalgo and him jammed for about 20 minutes.

The stand out performance which, much to my dismay, isn't on the DVD was BB King's performance.

He brought out Clapton, Buddy Guy, Jimmie Vaughn, and John Mayer and they did a 12 bar blues Jam for like 25 minutes.

The highlight was John Mayer. For a young, white kid, he can really play the blues.

The peak of the show, imo, is when Clapton plays an AMAZING version of "i shot the sheriff", and follows it immediately with "have you ever loved a woman".

I just cant get tired of that part, it gives me the chills.

To the original poster and everyone hesitating to pick this up, sell your pants if you have to. Its really good and youll discover many great guitar players if you didnt know them already, from rock to blues bluer than blue.

It's a sweet DVD, I love Sweet Home Chicago. I think it's awesome when a bunch of artist get together and just play.

The only downer of that album is ****in' Steve Vai. I can't stand him.

I also wish they put on something other than Desert Rose for Eric Johnson. I don't know much of Eric Johnson's stuff, but Desert Rose is not the best song he does. They should of done some back stage prep footage with him. THe guy's a total tone nut. I love it.
Whatever happened to sweet Jane?

Yea i agree, Johnsons isnt used to his full potentional.

First time i saw Johnson play was at crossroad fest. Then i picked up a G3 tour video where he plays redhouse with Satch and Vai, he blew me away.

I liked that song because Buddy Guy kept swearing for no real reason.

haha, I was at the show as well. What an amazing day. The jam with Mayer, B.B., Buddy Guy, Jimmy Vaughan, and Clapton was phenomenal.

In an interview with Vai in Guitar World he said that Jeff Beck showed up and said something to the effect of 'If I hear one more 12 bar blues song I'm going to ****ing kill someone.' Vai said he just laughed his ass off and was glad someone else had the balls to say it.

The DVD is a catch too, I've watched it a few times and it really was a great concert. About the time that Joe Walsh played his set is when the show ramped up to a whole new level.
