Eric Clapton, with the late great Dr. John on VH-1's "Duets" (full episode)

 

CLAPTON, ELTON & THE STONES; Pay Tribute to Dr. John

Eric Clapton, Elton John and The Rolling Stones are among the many artists remembering Dr. John, the New Orleans singer and piano player who died last Thursday from a heart attack. He was 77.

Clapton, who rarely comments when he loses a friend -- and he has lost plenty of them -- dedicated "Tears in Heaven" to the Doctor during his show in Mannheim, Germany. He followed that up with a statement online, saying, "Oh my God, this is unbelievably bad news, he was such a great musician and singer, and most of all a true friend. I am devastated, I thought he would live forever."
