It kind of reminds me of a NAMM show back in the mid 90s when Eddie Van Halen, Steve Morse, and Albert Lee performed together. Van Halen basically got his head handed to him by Morse and Lee (he was shaking his head in disbelief throughout most of the performance) - but whose autograph did everyone want after the show? EVH's.
Alvin Lee of Ten Years After is also another fantastic ax slinger. I always get Albert Lee and Alvin Lee mixed up...
