It's been a bad week for classic rockers. First, Bruce Springsteen's cousin and assistant tour manager, died in Kansas City on Monday thus cancelling his show that evening. Now we get news that Eric Clapton has cancelled his appearance at Friday's Rock & Roll Hall of Fame 25th anniversary concert at Madison Square Garden in New York due to gallstone surgery.
Clapton is recuperating at his home in England. Jeff Beck will take Clapton's place.
