Clapton and Rolling Stones to join forces

Eric Clapton is set to join forces with the Rolling Stones for a few tracks on the Stones' blues themed studio album, which is thought to be released "sometime in the autumn" according to guitarist Keith Richards.

The Stones have revealed that they were creating a new album at the launch of Exhibitionism, a career retrospective at London's Saatchi Gallery earlier this year. The album will draw heavily upon Chicago blues and is said to feature new material as well as covers of other artists such as Howlin' Wolf and Little Walter.

Citing Claptons appearance, Richard's described it as just "like old times down in Richmond" , where the pair used to perform in their former band The Yardbirds. Richard's then went on to unveil the possibility of performing in the UK noting " I think it's on the menu somewhere. "

Clapton had also recently released his signature Fender Stratocaster. Clapton is arguably one of the most famous Strat players around and so it is no surprise that his name has made its way into Fender’s iconic signature series guitars.
