It's the domino effect for Derek Trucks

Wednesday, September 18, 2013 by PAUL WILLISTEIN Focus Editor in Focus

You might not have been surprised if Derek Trucks had named his band Derek and the Dominos.

After all, his parents named him after the Eric Clapton rock band, which released the 1970 landmark album, "Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs," with Duane Allman playing slide guitar, Trucks says in a recent phone interview from the road during his tour.

And in the domino effect that happens in the world of rock 'n' roll, Derek became a blues guitar prodigy at age nine, playing public gigs with Buddy Guy and, yes, later, with Eric Clapton himself.
