Rock and Roll can often times be a bit of a soap opera, and the circumstances surrounding the making of this landmark album were no exception. Addicted to heroin, drinking heavily, and obsessed with a gorgeous blonde model (who happened to be married to his best friend, George Harrison), a young Eric Clapton assembled a stellar line-up of musicians to create one of rock's most intense and harrowing albums. This line-up included an up and coming Southern rock guitar virtuoso and an accomplished drummer who also happened to be a deranged madman. Add lots of whisky and cocaine to the mix, along with a young Rita Coolidge, and the writings of a 12th century Persian poet, and you have the makings of one insane rock and roll experience.

On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of its release, Jon and Chris celebrate this heart-wrenching and bluesy magnum opus from Eric Clapton and company.
