British blues guitarist Eric Clapton and American blues-guitar

legend B.B. King are discussing working together on an album,

according to a Clapton spokesperson. The tentative plan is for the pair

to enter a studio in January to record the material. It is not yet known

if the album will consist of new songs or covers. Clapton, a former member

of the 1960s blues rock bands the Yardbirds and Cream,

recently released a two-CD set of originals and covers of such blues

standards as "The Sky Is Crying," "County Jail Blues" and "Crossroads."
