Every day a multitude of stars wander through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with our intrepid correspondents. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that’s why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.
While the music world was paying attention to the two high-profile music festivals in the U.K. (Glastonbury and Hard Rock Calling) over the weekend, there was one musical extravaganza that made plenty of noise on domestic shores. Eric Clapton’s annual Crossroads Guitar Festival took place over the weekend in Bridgeview, Illinois. The salute to six-string wizardry brought headliner and organizer Clapton together with a handful of the world’s best axe-slingers, including John Mayer, Buddy Guy, Sheryl Crow, B.B. King, Ronnie Wood, Johnny Lang, Robert Randolph, Billy Gibbons and Jeff Beck. The entire festival was hosted by actor and guitar enthusiast Bill Murray, who appeared in the guise of Elvis Presley during one segment. Later, Murray also dressed up as Jimi Hendrix for a bit of comedy and jammed with a handful of the all-stars on hand.
Murray wasn’t the only star rocking out over the weekend, as the Jonas Brothers hung out at the Hard Rock Calling Festival in London’s Hyde Park and Aerosmith tore it up at a show in Barcelona, Spain.
