Keef & Clapton Duet At Hubert Sumlin Concert

The two legends play together in New York

The duo were performing at the Memorial Concert for the late blues guitar pioneer and member of Howlin' Wolf's band  Hubert Sumlin, who passed away in December.

The Howlin For Hubert concert took place at the Apollo Theater in New York. It featured artists such as Buddy Guy, Billy Gibbons, Warren Haynes, Jimmie Vaughan, Derek Trucks, Doyle Bramhall II and Elvis Costello –  plus Sumlin and Howlin Wolf’s former bandmates, harmonica player James Cotton, guitarist Jody Williams and saxophonist Eddie Shaw.

Richards joined Clapton onstage to play Howlin's Wolf classic 'Going Down Slow', before he played a solo 'Little Red Rooster' and a version of 'Spoonful' with Clapton once again.

The performance was Richards' first major live show since the Stones wrapped their last world tour five years ago.
