George Terry was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1950. A guitarist, he began his career as session musician in the late 1960s. George was a studio musician at Criteria Studios in Miami, Florida when he was first introduced to Eric Clapton in 1970. Prior to signing on with Eric for the 461 Ocean Boulevard sessions in 1974, he worked extensively with Simon & Garfunkel, Sonny & Cher, Neil Diamond and on Bill Wyman’s solo efforts. In a 1976 interview, George said he was working in a studio next to Eric’s and Eric invited him to jam “when he got bored with his stuff.” This evolved in Terry’s participation on the 461 Ocean Boulevard Sessions and becoming a member of the band. During those sessions, Eric recorded four of George’s songs: “Mainline Florida,” “Lay Down Sally,” “Don’t Blame Me,” and “Let Me Stay.” The latter was not used on the album. During some of Eric’s 1970s tours, George handled the bulk of the soloing and sang back-up vocals. His association with Eric ended in 1978 when he returned to Florida and session work. © 2014 WHERE'S ERIC!

Great underrated album from the great Philadelphia born guitarist, George Terry. George may not be a household name, but in his earlier days he played with Joe Bonamassa and later on with many of the greats in rock music and other genres. George has said that, “After all is said and done, it’s the songwriters I would most wish to perform with… and at the top of the list is Paul McCartney”.
