Eric Clapton Announces Additional Dates For 2011 Touring

(November 29, 2010) — Directly on the heels of Eric Clapton’s recent new album released to strong critical acclaim, the artist announced initial dates for his 2011 touring that will encompass the West Coast of the U.S. in the Spring to be followed by a run of shows in Ireland and the U.K. in May 2011.

Critics have been raving about the latest Clapton album as a new and inspiring body of work by one of the world’s most legendary guitar players. Co-produced by guitarist and long-time collaborator Doyle Bramhall II, the album features an all star cast of musical collaborations starting with the legendary JJ Cale, drummer Jim Keltner, bassist Willie Weeks, and keyboardist Walt Richmond—and the sessions later added guests including Steve Winwood, Wynton Marsalis, Sheryl Crow, Allen Toussaint, and Derek Trucks. Clapton created a collection that touches on everything from century-old traditional brass bands to little-known country blues to brand-new originals. The result is both relaxed and revelatory, and unlike anything the guitarist has done in his legendary career. Read more

Interview with Dana from Designs By Dana Tattoos

Interview and Photos by Scott Preston

Almost 20 years ago I got my first tattoo here in Cincinnati and since then have acquired a few more. The person who did my first tattoo is still going strong at the same shop I stepped into 20 years ago. Dana, from Designs by Dana Tattoo’s will be celebrating 40 years of tattooing this coming January. I thought what better way to help celebrate such an amazing art form than to sit down with the man himself at his shop in Northside. Read more

Today one-man-band Keller Williams announces his tour plans for early 2011.
