    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.
