However, if you simply follow ...
... you'll hear Eddie Van Halen playing Eric Clapton's guitar solo on Cream's "Crossroads" — note for note — in early 1985.
Van Halen was being interviewed by reporter Lisa Robinson, who starts things off by saying, "You can play many different styles of guitar, can't you? You were telling me before you can play 'Crossroads' note for note."
Van Halen takes it from there.
By the way, not that you need to be reminded of how brilliant Clapton was during his Cream years, but pay attention to the phrasing of the solo as you hear Van Halen play it without bass and drums.
