i have an old looking video where Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, The Rolling Stones and Dire Straits all got together and played Layla. The song is amazing. Does anyone know when, where and why they played this? My dad is asking too so id like a response. Thanks.

I have that video. Did anyone else notice that the guy playing the gong got a lot of camera time? That guy does look like he's working hard at it, though.

wow i just watched it. look for the part towards the end where the gong guy is going nuts half killing himself hitting the gong and one of the guys pokes clapton and points back there. then when the guy is done he pushes the gong over. its pretty funny.

Question... why is Jimmy Freaking Paige hidden behind that clown from Dire Straits? He's probably the best guitarist ever to walk to the earth not named Hendrix.
#17
Wow... You are possibly the most ignorant dumbass I've ever seen on this forum.

Calling Mark Knopfler a clown?

Man... you need to open up your ears. I'm not saying that Page isn't a great guitarist, because he's one of my personal favorites, but even if you don't like Knopfler, you have to realize that on many levels he's a much better guitarist than Page.

Even if you disagree with what I just said, which you obviously do, don't disrespect a great artist you ass.

a) To call Mark Knopfler a clown shows how careless and foolish you are.
b) It's Jimmy Page not Jimmy Freaking Paige.

well I, am actually going to defend him here (sorta). Jimmy is kinda hidden by everyone else, but I will say, Mark Knopfler does cast a large shadow.

Even so, that's not an excusable reason for that dickhole to call Knopfler a clown.

I'm sure Jimmy would've moved forward if he wanted to be seen so badly.

well.....i agree he shouldnt call him a clown, but Page is better than Knopfler by a long shot in my books
#29
I wasn't trying to disrespect his opinion, and I respect yours too, but I still think he should've been a little more respectful to Knopfler regardless of whether or not he thinks Page is a better guitarist than him.
#30
I agree with TheHeartbreaker. I respect your opinion, but you have to recognise that Knopfler is a musical genius, and should be more respectful of him, however, should you think that Page is better, that's up to you.

TBH, I don't even think Knopfler is on that video. I cant see him. Thing is, from the looks of it to me this video is from sometime in the late 70s/early 80s, and Mark Knopfler would at that time been most probably have been using a red Strat with maple fingerboard. Also, he has always had his hair longer than that, he has never been seen in a jacket as loud as that one, and he plays with his fingers like 95% of the time, and it wasn't until recently until he used a plectrum more. Every other time he has played Layla with Clapton he has used his fingers. Also, when he sings the chorus and parts (which he wouldn't normally do) it doesn't sound like MK to me.

EDIT: regardless of whether Knopfler is a better player than Page (which I think he is, by a long shot), I've always thought that Mark Knopfler was a much closer friend that Page was to Clapton. They've toured together and have played a LOT of shows together.

EDIT2: Only just read andrewbiles' post, and MK isn't on that list.

Page was probably too F***ed up to realize whether or not he was at the front.

And in regard to all of the Page/Knoffler who's better talk- there is no better only favorite. So get over it, and respect other people's opinion.

Somewhat.

I mean, they were all extremely respected and talented guitarists, who, yes, did play in The Yardbirds.

However, they didn't all play in The Yardbirds together at the same time, so it's not technically a "reunion".
#38
I thought you people were guitar fans; Mark Knopfler is nowhere to be found on this stage, it is Andy Fairweather Low. Mark doesn't use a pick and this was one of JP's first appearances after the death of John Bonham. Drugs, that's why he's so thin..
