* Eric Clapton had seemingly done it all...a part of 3 most influential bands of the 20th Century, married the woman of his dreams and produced most significant music in his solo career, but as of 2007, there was still something missing from his most impressive resume. That got fixed with a tour and an album with a mentor of sorts. Name the artist he played with...
*This artist got his start with a 1960's band, the Castiles. They played venues in and around Brick Township,NJ. In 2018, the only surviving member of that band (other than the artist in question) passed away, making this artist 'The Last Man Standing' from the group. Name the artist...
*This well-known musician honed a rural motif with the track we'll play and it fit nicely as he has been an outspoken advocate for environmental issues and small farmers, as demonstrated by his having co-founded Farm Aid, the benefit concert in 1985. The title track from the 1992 album of the same name is kind of a sequel to his 1972 album. Name the artist and extra credit for the name of the song...
*This artist released a song that was a big hit, but caused him some huge headaches along the way.
The original song was not inspired by teenage love in the heartland of America as most thought, but rather the increasing number of interracial couples the artist had noticed while touring the country.
In 1982...this was turf the record company was unwilling to walk, so they proposed the changes that ultimately made the song a bit hit...while frustrating the artist. Name the artist and extra credit for the song...
