We have one more bit of Grammy news for you.
Amid all the talk about James Hetfield’s uncooperative microphone, the confused house band playing a Metallica tune as Megadeth walked to the stage and Bruno Mars’ shred-packed Prince tribute, there was a fine blues performance by Gary Clark Jr. and R&B singer William Bell.
The duo played a tight (albiet truncated) version of “Born Under a Bad Sign,” which Bell wrote—with Booker T. Jones—in 1967. The song was recorded by Albert King in ’67 and by Cream a few months later.
You can check out a pro-shot clip of the performance below. Clark delivers some ace Albert King fills and a killer guitar solo. Enjoy!
