Francis L. Vena from New York City,, NyDuane played lead with EC on this song; the guitar pharsing at the end is simply magical. It's truly a shame that Duane and EC could not have collaberated on more projects. It's so sad the good brother Duane was killed on his bike. Next to Layla this song is on my top ten list of all time- Duane studio work on the Layla album was the crowning achievement of his guitar work- Also buy the ABB live at the Fillmore remastered CD- the guitar tracks jump off the disc- This CD is cataloged at the Smithsoian Museum as a seminal moment in American music history-flv
Jim from Batavia, IlUhhhhhh, I believe the drummer on this Why does love have to be so sad to be JIM GORDON....who is in prison for killing his mother at the state prison for the crimminaly insane in Atascadero California. Jim Gordon played drums in Derek and the Dominoes both in the studio and on the Live version of this song.
The two guitar players on this song are Eric Clapton and Duane ALLMAN....on the studio version that is. The live version was just Eric Clapton alone.
William from Las Cruces, NmBig Jim Keltner's drum intro is thrilling. Sets up the whole song.
Evan from Fullerton, CaI was under the impression that Clapton and Allman shared lead guitar duties on this song.
Marvin from Harwich, MaI believe that It was Duane Allman that Played Guitar on "Why does love have to be so sad?" not Greg as is credited on the site.
Geffen Records made history on June 27, 1994 when Aerosmith's "Head First" became the first major label song made available for exclusive digital download. Download speeds at the time were so slow it took around 75 minutes to download the track.
