Eric Clapton and Rolling Stones Keith Richards Jam For Hubert Sumlin

(hennemusic) Music fans were in for a rare treat Friday night at New York's Apollo Theater. Eric Clapton was joined by Keith Richards at Howlin For Hubert: A Concert to Benefit the Jazz Foundation of America.

Rolling Stone reports the event was a tribute to guitarist Hubert Sumlin, who played in Howlin' Wolf's band for decades and passed away on December 4th due to heart failure.

The entire show, which featured all-stars including Buddy Guy, Billy Gibbons, Warren Haynes, Jimmie Vaughan, Derek Trucks, Doyle Bramhall II and Elvis Costello plus overlooked legends like Wolf's former bandmates, harmonica player James Cotton, guitarist Jody Williams and saxophonist Eddie Shaw was one for the history books.
