    Love how Johnny Winter is credited with lead guitar and miscellaneous screaming in the credits.

    Odder still that one of the blackest men ever and one of the palest albinos ever matched up on one famous tune like this.

    Only in America.

    And I know ... racist.

    Musical brilliance. He's touring the West Coast again next spring. Not going to miss him this time around.

    Cool to see this. I've been listening to Traffic all week. Low Spark of High Heeled Boys is a great album.

    good lord i remember seeing him in the 80s and back in the high life
    huge Traffic fan and went back and listened to all of it when i discovered it in high school after hearing Blind Faith at a party
    Capaldi is a legend that get mentioned too few times amongst the greats

    i remember Winwood saying he was an entertainer and would end up in Vegas and his music getting a little too poppy after Valerie era and l lost track
    wonder if he's going to be playing hits because that would be a full set for sure
    looks like some of the tour dates will be w Steely dan which ime is a little hit and miss and not sure Fagan has anything left in the tank
    but if they play Santa Barbara bowl i can get you hooked up and this sounds like a show they would sign and promote

    Steve Winwood is a musical genius. He has the full package: can sing, write, and okay multiple instruments to perfection.

    He rivals Clapton on guitar and can play rings around anyone on the keyboard. Not sure why others get more love than Stevie.

    had the privilege of seeing Carlton play the entire royal scam album plus w my kid
    i don't think i've ever openly wept watching a live show but i did
    the music is completely different w his playing
    only live minute i've been able to find of what he meant to the sound of this band

    Carlton is a good guy. I waited on him at the NAAM show in 1989, after he'd survived that shooting. Affable, gentle, kind person. Superb guitarist. Glad he's still among us.

    have you ever been to the baked potato in universal city devil?
    haven’t been in ages, but they had the best random performers drop in unannounced
    stanley clark, adrian belew, steve lukather, jeff pocaro, any many others i can’t recall
    people said fagan and becker had stopped by, but i never saw them
    i missed carlton stopping by on an 80’s friday night that i opted to stay home and watch miami vice instead of going out
    if only…

    miami vice was a pretty big deal wasn't it?
    i've been there but never saw any live music there
    when i saw carlton w the dan it was at the old universal amphitheater and they had closed off half of the seats!
    i couldn't believe the show hadn't sold out but i guess that's why they shut it down
    can still remember taking this crazy Thai girl to a massive attack show there and she basically gave me a lap dance the entire show
    we were in the first row of the second tier and at first i didn't know what to do as everyone in the area was staring lol
    after a couple of songs i just laid back and played the part it was awesome
    we had been drinking beer playing ping pong before the show
    those were the days

    have a pretty cool amphitheater story
    was 1979 and i took this bkitch to see the cars
    got high as fuck (as we did back then), then all of a sudden this guy comes out and totally captivates the audience
    was ‘79 so new wave was just hitting, and this guy and his band were amazing
    great voice, great music, and crazy energy
    three encores later i ask some dude who these guys are
    joe jackson he says

    side note:
    i was 19, my date was 21, and i was completely intimidated by this older woman
    kissed her but that was all
    but years later she became a porn star
    that’s a female porn star @Finski :smh:
