George Harrison tribute

Back Home was the first studio album released since the death of his good friend, George Harrison in November 2001. The previous studio album being entirely composed of songs by Robert Johnson, Eric Clapton covered the George Harrison song "Love Comes to Everyone" from his 1979 self-titled album as tribute to his late friend. Clapton had played the guitar introduction on the original version. In Japan during the tour of George Harrison with Eric Clapton and his band, the song was played but only once, the first night (1 December 1991, Yokohama Arena).
