Gary Clark Jr. and William Bell Play "Born Under a Bad Sign" at the Grammys

Gary Clark Jr. and William Bell Play

We have one more bit of Grammys news for you.

Amid all the chatter 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 legendary R&B singer William Bell.

The duo played a tight (albiet truncated) version of "Born Under a Bad Sign," which Bell actually 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!
