Video: Eric Clapton, B.B. King, Jimmie Vaughan and Robert Cray Perform "Every Day I Have the Blues"

Eric Clapton's fourth Crossroads Guitar Festival took place this past Friday and Saturday night at New York City's Madison Square Garden.

Besides Clapton, this year's lineup included Jeff Beck, Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Jimmie Vaughan, the Allman Brothers Band, Gary Clark Jr., Robert Cray and Vince Gill.

Below, check out some fan-filmed footage of Clapton performing "Every Day I Have the Blues" with Cray, King and Vaughan. For another video from the Crossroads Guitar Festival, check out Beck and bassist Tal Wilkenfeld performing "I Ain't Superstitious" right here.

The two-night festival was the culmination of Clapton's US tour, which kicked off March 14 in support of his new album, Old Sock. All profits from the festival will benefit The Crossroads Centre in Antigua, a treatment and education facility founded by Clapton for chemically dependent people.
