Eric Clapton & Steve Winwood History
Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood have known each other for over 40 years, they were bandmates in the 1960’s supergroup, Blind Faith. Blind Faith came about in 1969, after the breakup of Clapton’s group Cream, and while Winwood’s Traffic was on hiatus. The group, which also included Cream drummer Ginger Baker and bassist Ric Grech, released one self-titled album before splitting.
Clapton and Winwood have not played much together until just over a year ago they announced they would reunite and go on tour. It has now been a year since Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood played three shows at Madison Square Garden, their first NYC gigs together since their collaborative outfit Blind Faith made a brief swing through the States back in the summer of ‘69.
Now, as that seminal supergroup’s sole album turns 40 in August, the Hall of Famers have announced an equally brief, 14-city tour that stops June 27 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and concludes June 30 at the Hollywood Bowl.
This reunion of sorts, however, seems very much in keeping with Clapton’s ongoing journey through his past. First came the Cream reunion of 2005, then the 2006 tour that found Derek Trucks more than capably filling the Duane Allman role in a show that leaned heavily on Derek and the Dominos material … and now this. (A shame they didn’t enlist Ginger Baker to drum again, doncha think?)
If only Delaney Bramlett hadn’t just died, maybe some kinda regrouping of Delaney & Bonnie & Friends would have been Clapton’s next stop. Instead, perhaps he’ll just zoom forward in his chronology and stage a few performances of 461 Ocean Boulevard in its entirety? No? OK, Just a thought.
