Eric Clapton joining the Stones in Leicester 1976

Something I knew had happened but first time I hear and see it: Eric Clapton joining the Stones at Leicester 1976 during Jumping Jack Flash. Around the 26:20 minute mark you can see Clapton behind Wood, and hear two guitars soloing.

This is new to me, was this known?

That is new to me also. I thought that he joined them on SFTD somewhere on that tour; when he's wearing a beret. But had not heard this. How can you tell it's Clapton?

He played with the Stones on the '75 US tour.

And Clapton is on SFM at the beginning of the documentary as well.

Wow. Never knew this. Always thought it was just that 1975 show. Gotta love the 70s. Interesting that I always thought something was off about the music at the end of that documentary which I have seen a few times just thought it was the mix or even some kind of over dub from another show or something, but now lo and behold it's f'ing eric clapton. Bravo!

Yep! That’s one of my White Whale recordings I hope to hear someday. As you know, the stones jammed Key to the Highway during the Dallas rehearsals. Sounds like Jagger on rhythm and Richards on lead. It’s a cool little grungy version.

I forget about that one. I don't think it was ever officially released, correct?

They released a short part of Stu's version as a hidden track on "Dirty Work" and Keith released his solo version 1993 on the CD-Single "Eileen" and in 2020 on his 7''-Single "Hate It When You Leave".

Oh my God how good did the Stones sound in 76' on SFM & JJF, Clapton absolutely should have joined the Stones.

A press report about Clapton, 2 songs, plus "unprecedented encore."

I was at that show...but I'd either forgotten or had been completely oblivious to EC's contribution.

On SFM the video footage appears to be from Glasgow (thanks Nico) with sound from Leicester with Clapton.

Great article. Clapton brought back the Stones for an encore. They didn’t do that a lot those days. We might think it’s true as the writer of the newspaper probably was at the concert….

The Stones sounded great, but the singing of Mick is not that great to me. He’s just belting out the lyrics most of the times. Not on all the songs tough.

What was the encore? According to Zentgraf Key To The Highway was played in the middle of the set and JJF and SFM were the closing numbers on the whole tour.

than it was around the middle.
Live debut for song 12.
Whilst there is no audio recording of this
show, parts of songs 1,8,16-19 featured on

It seems odd to have been played in the middle. I have to think it was actually the encore.

Yep...that was his shouting phase coming to a peak.

Thankfully, he eventually saw the light and came through it grinning smiley

Thanks TravelinMan yes a great memory 47 years later. There is another poster here called Spud who was there too I'm sure some great memories for both of us. I was 17 and - sad to say - the friend I went with has since died. So I can't even remember this with him. Unless he faked his death and he is Spud (joking)

P.S. The Stones played 2 nights at Granby Halls Leicester and I noticed Spud says he doesn't remember Clapton. It is of course just possible that Spud was at the OTHER Leicester gig

Yeah for sure Micks shouting, out of breath, but the guitars more than make up for it.
