Vince Gill was among the guitar gods who took the stage at Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival over the weekend. He joined fellow headliners B. B. King, Jeff Beck, John Mayer, Buddy Guy and, of course, Clapton at the Chicago event.

Sheryl Crow performed as well, pairing with Gill for the Clapton classic “Lay Down Sally.”

Gill’s A-list band backed up sets by guitar slingers Keb’ Mo’, Earl Klugh and Albert Lee. And Clapton’s band was comprised of guest stars Beck and Steve Winwood.

Pete Huttlinger was also among the 24 musicians on the line-up for the day-long event at Toyota Park.

It was the third festival Clapton has organized to benefit his Crossroads addiction treatment facility in Antigua.
