He has both Gadd and Sonny Emory on his U.S. tour.

Really? Maybe Steve has conflicts with James Taylor? I can’t imagine 2 drummers being needed?

I saw him in '90 with Steve Ferrone - a monster! And with Ray Cooper on percussion, he blew my mind with his solo........

Through the years, by far the best suited drummer for Clapton was Jamie Oldaker. Paired with Radle made for near perfect.
Gordon was great at everything but had limited touring with EC - only the short-lived D&D and the Delaney/Bonnie period.
