Doobie Brothers, Peter Frampton Cover Eric Clapton’s ‘Let It Rain’
The Doobie Brothers and Peter Frampton joined forces digitally to cover Eric Clapton’s “Let It Rain” and recorded an accompanying music video.
Tom Johnston told Rolling Stone, “A couple of months ago, Peter and I were going over various tunes after deciding to do a song or video together. I tossed out ‘Let It Rain’ by Eric Clapton and he loved the idea. He’s a phenomenal guitarist and a fan of Clapton’s as am I, so it seemed a great idea to take to the rest of the guys.”
Johnston continued, “Peter, Pat, and I took verses and solos and John played some cool pedal steel and helped us put that together with Bill Payne on piano, John Cowan on bass, and Ed Toth on drums. Also Rob Arthur who did all the video work played B3. It was a team effort! We really enjoyed working together on this with Peter.”
Frampton also told Rolling Stone, “It was so much fun playing with my friends the Doobie Brothers even virtually! I look forward to a time when we can, hopefully, play together in person.”
