For the third song of his set last night at Madison Square Garden, Eric Clapton invited out the first guest of the night: John Mayer, who Clapton has called a “master” guitar player. They launched into 1989’s swaggering, gospel-steeped “Pretending.” That was the case throughout Clapton’s 70th Birthday Celebration, which featured friends like Jimmie Vaughan, Derek Trucks and Doyle Bramhall Jr. sitting in.
