I'd love to hear it on the new tour as well.

But "Sleeping On The Sidewalk" will always be on top of my list of songs that I want to hear Brian singing on tour.

That is a really good version, and the type of song Brian sings well. When this was released on Star Fleet, Eric Clapton said that Let me Out had some nice bits, but that Bluesbreaker (Dedicated to EC) was brutal, and that neither Brian or EVH knew how to play or approach the blues as guitarists.

Really? That must have stung Brian pretty bad. Do you have a source for this BTR?

I don't think Eric Clapton was on the money when he made that statement.
I think he'd be right in saying that if Bluesbreaker was his basis for comparison, but Brian has better examples than that song.

i think EC was spot on...blues is one style that Brian doesn't carry off very well...

I don't have the actual magazine name, but it was around the time of EC's Behind the Sun album that he was doing press for. I have a pretty enclycopaedic recall of virtually everything I've ever read, , EC, talking about the album said that Star Fleet and Let me Out had some interesting moments, but was aksed about Bluesbreaker which Brian dedicated to hin. Without saying this is verbatim, but 95% accurate he said, "it's horrible. They have no understanding of how to play the blues. They just go right at with no build up." In the past, EC commented on "that bloke from Queen" being a really good guitarist, but this isn't fabricated, he was not inmpressed with the playing of either Brian or EVH on Bluesbreaker.

Brian just hasn't explored ti enough and *we* haven't heard him do that to really have an opinion on it.

Besides, did Brian ever come out and say that it was a blues song? All I ever got from it was they were just jamming, nothing more.

Anyway, if I want an opinion on what the blues sounds like, some old white british dude is the last one I'm asking.
