Eric Clapton & Sheryl Crow - "Little Wing" - Live 1999

Eric founded Crossroads Centre Antigua, a residential treatment centre for alcohol and chemical dependencies as he saw a great need for such a facility in the Caribbean and around the world. It opened its doors with 36 beds in October 1998. Today, Crossroads Centre, Antigua also operates a 16 bed halfway house in Antigua called Bevon House and facilitates various ongoing recovery initiatives on the island of Antigua and the Caribbean.

A broadly smiling Eric walked out on the Madison Square Garden stage on June 30, 1999 and told the audience, "There's been a lot of talk, a lot of interviews, a lot of TV, a lot of promotion for the centre and for getting and staying sober. The talking is done. I'll just play for you." Over the next three-plus hours, he alternated between fronting his six piece band and acting as the "house band" for guests Sheryl Crow, Mary J. Blige, and Bob Dylan. David Sanborn joined the band throughout the night on saxophone.


Well she's walking through the clouds

With a circus mind

That's running wild

Butterflies and zebras and moonbeams

And fairly tales

That's all she ever thinks about

Riding the wind

When I'm sad she comes to me

With a thousand smiles

She gives to me free

It's alright, she says

It's alright

Take anything you want from me


Fly on, little wing

Songwriters: Jimi Hendrix
