Layla Easter Egg - Tribute to Bird!
The great 70's band "Derik and the Dominoes" put out one album. It was the legendary work of art called "Layla".
Eric Clapton with Dwayne Allman as a fantastic second lead guitar and legendary drummer Jim Gordon wrote "Layla". The three of them told the heart wrenching and string bending tale of spurned love that was lifted from Arabian legend about the prince who could not possess the king's wife. It closely paralleled Clapton's affair with George Harrison's wife, Patti. It must have worked, later she left "king" George for Eric.
The egg?? At very end of this breath taking song is a bird tweeting. That bird call was a tribute to Charlie Parker(The Bird). The song structure was also lifted. In a sly thank you, Dwayne Allman tweets his guitar at the end of the song to salute Bird for use of his song structure.
