374. Derek and the Dominoes

A chance for Eric Clapton to receive an unprecedented fourth induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame lies in the brief run of his Blues Rock group, Derek and the Dominoes. The band only produced one studio album, but it spawned one of the most known Rock songs of all time in “Layla” which next to “Smoke on the Water” could have the best known guitar riff of Rock history. Though the album was a flop at the time of its released, it has since been considered by many to be the crown jewel of the Clapton library. Throw in the Duane Allman connection and this could be all the perception needed for Derek and the Dominoes to gain Hall induction.
