Come on in my kitchen

Posted on Wed, Dec 31, 2008 at 2:23 PM

Guitarist Delaney Bramlett ― whose own Delaney and Bonnie and Friends variously included Eric Clapton, Duane Allman, Jimi Hendrix and George Harrison ― passed away Saturday, December 27, at the age of 69.

The Mississippi native reportedly died due to complications following gallbladder surgery at a Los Angeles hospital.

Bramlett first became popular in the '60s on the TV music series Shindig and then with his band Delaney and Bonnie and Friends, which featured Bramlett and then-wife Bonnie Lynn. The duo's backing band was populated throughout the years with the likes of Clapton, Hendrix, Allman and Harrison, among other famous friends.

Though a list of his collaborations could fill volumes, Bramlett's most legendary pairing was arguably with Clapton, who claimed it was Bramlett who gave him the courage to sing.
