Fans of guitar greatness in South Florida enjoyed a pretty serious string of fantastic shows in 2012: Steve Vai, Eric Johnson, Aerosmith, B.B. King, Brad Paisley, and what feels like countless other pickers and shredders. Hell, even the alternative six-string-sect had the opportunity to experience multiple encounters of the noise kind courtesy of Thurston Moore during Art Basel Miami Beach. If recent announcements are any indication of the year to come, the Sunshine State's six string cognoscenti are in for another year of excellence.
Mounting on the anticipation of scheduled performances by the Darkness and bottleneck wunderkind Derek Trucks and wifey Susan Tedeschi, the throne-chillin' king of Brit-blues, Eric Clapton, has announced a two-day tour stop at Hollywood's Hard Rock Live.
