Happy Birthday Steve
Posted:Monday, 05/12/2014 at 04:05am by Greg Easterling
It's the birthday of Steve Winwood, one of the great voices of rock... and no slouch on the instrumental side for his skills on organ, piano and guitar. We first met him in his teens as the main man for the Spencer Davis Group, giving us the testosterone laden hits, "Gimme Some Lovin'" and "I'm A Man". From there, Steve went on to form the more experimental Traffic and Blind Faith before defaulting to a more commercially oriented solo career. This morning we featured his 1980 comeback LP, "Arc Of A Diver", a nice balance of commerce and creativity. We heard the title track plus the single, "While You See A Chance" as we tracked Side 1 this morning.
