You're in denial. The DTB is dead.

Dead is a strong statement. I bet we see them again at some point. Just probably not in the next 5 years. Thinking something along the lines of Aquarium Rescue Unit's infrequent reunion shows...

I agree! I miss the DTB terriblly. I love Derek and Susan together, but there was something special about the DTB. I only wish they would have said it was over, rather than saying they were taking a year off.....kept me hoping. But I've got to face facts. Life ain't fair, the DTB is no more.

I bet they play again.. I don't see this new band playing any straight jazz or old school blues, but I think eventually Derek will get the itch to get into those kinda tunes again. At least I really hope so!!

Agreed, I am just short of being heartbroken over this. The dtb was real, no bullsh*t music.....and I miss it!

Yeah, I loved "Soul Stew Revival"....but the something special about the dtb, was Derek's inhibition....That looks to be gone now in favor of a laid back approach that never appears to want to be any larger than his wife's singing voice..... Too bad... we miss that Derek.

If true. We have been robbed, it just ain't right I tell ya

Exactly BIGV. Even when Derek is with the ABB, I feel he is holding back a bit as far as keeping his solos short enough to share the stage. With DTB, it was like the gloves were off and he could go off on a magical 20 minute jam that just left you shaking your head. Although I will enjoy his new band, I look forward to the day where he finds a different (maybe a side) project to allow him the creative freedom on stage.

To me, Derek's switch mirrors almost exactly what Clapton went through when he quit Cream.

In Cream, Clapton was the guitar maestro, taking epic freewheeling solos. Then he listened to The Band, decided he had been self-indulgent and that being a guitar maestro was **** , and wanted to get some funky soulful songs out instead.

It was the end of Cream, which was sad. It did give us Derek & the Dominoes, which is fine with me.

It is interesting that Derek's decision to do something similar has arrived not too long after he worked with Clapton.

Interesting take... But I still think he is sacrificing his own musical pleasure to be with his wife..If so, His gain, our loss...just the way I see it

revisionist history.

Cream imploded Clapton didn't end it. It was mostly friction with Bruce/Baker.

Then Eric went as a sideman in Delaney and Bonnie. Still the guitar ace.
It was then that Delaney encouraged his singing.

not the other way around as you would slant it.

Actually, I am quoting Eric Clapton.

I left out Blind Faith, obviously, but Clapton was clearly stepping away from the lead guitar thing there, as the Blind Faith DVD shows too.

When Clapton discusses Bonnie and Delaney, he expresses his love for their soulful music. The Susan and Derek band have stated that they see that band as part of the model for their own sound.

Here is part of Clapton's speech when he inducted The Band into the Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame:
"Thank you. I want to talk about what it was like to be a musician - a serious musician who couldn't be in the Band. And that was tough, that was hard. I remember being on tour in about '66 or '67 with a band called the Cream, and we thought we were the bee's knees, you know? And I met this guy... I knew this man in L.A. who was an entrepreneur of different sorts of things, and he had a tape by a band called the Crackers, and he lent it to me, and I took it on the road with me, and it became my drug. When we would get to the end of a gig, Jack and Ginger would go off and do their stuff, and I'd put this tape on. And I'd go into another world. And it was my kind of release.
For someone like me, who had been born in England, like Elton was talking about, and worshiped the music from America, it was very tough to find a place to belong in all this - and this band that I was listening to on this tape had it all. They were white, but they seemed to have derived all they could from black music, and they combined it to make a beautiful hybrid. And for me it was serious. It was serious, and it was grown up, and it was mature, and it told stories, and it had beautiful harmonies, fantastic singing, beautiful musicianship without any virtuosity. Just economy and beauty.
And I wanted to be in the band. So I went and told Jack and Ginger that I couldn't go on anymore. There was something else happening that I had to bow out of because. And I went - Robbie and the boys will never know this - but I went to visit the Band in Woodstock, and I really sort of went there to ask if I could join the band."

Those are Clapton's words. You can tell him he is wrong about himself if you want! ;-)

He continues, "And I went - Robbie and the boys will never know this - but I went to visit the Band in Woodstock, and I really sort of went there to ask if I could join the band. I mean, I didn't have the guts to say it - I didn't have the nerve. I just sort of sat there and watched these guys work. And I remember Robbie saying, "We don't jam. We don't jam, so there's no point in sitting here and trying to, you know... We just write and work." And I was very impressed, you know? And from that day, I spent the rest of my career - until The Last Waltz, anyway - trying to find ways to imitate what they had."
