Eric Clapton’s 24 Nights concert album fueled much of the writing and such that I did over the holidays. It’s really Clapton at the height of his powers – Young enough that the energy was still powerful and yet old enough that he knew how to channel it.

“Bad Love” is one of my favorite songs from his Journeyman record, with that version featuring pal Phil Collins on drums. But this live cut is really good and features just some fantastic musicianship from everyone in his band.
