Jomenvisst, är det en låttitel från Blind Faiths korta men fantastiska tid tillsammans. Bandet bestod av Eric Clapton, gitarr och sång, Steve Winwood, gitarr och sång, Ginger Baker, trummor och Rick Grech, bas. De bildades tidigt 1969 och upplöstes i november samma år och hann bara ge ut en skiva, kort och gott heter den just, Blind Faith! Ett mästerverk! ett måste i skivhyllan!
DÅ 1969 och NU 2007!!!!!! Can´t find my way home
And here is Had to cry today with Steve Winwood and Eric Clapton at the Crossroads Guitar Festival 2007, also with Derek Trucks and Doyle Bramhall
As the Smoking Section reported yesterday, the Blind Faith duo of Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood are reuniting again for a 2009 tour. Last year the pair kept their shows limited to New York’s Madison Square Garden, but this time around the pair are hitting the road, starting with a June 10th show in East Rutherford, New Jersey and wrapping up with a June 30th performance at Los Angeles’ storied Hollywood Bowl.
Clapton has been reconnecting with former bandmates recently. He hooked up with Cream a few years back for a successful string of concerts, then reunited with Winwood last year — and next he’ll share the stage with fellow Yardbird Jeff Beck for a pair of concerts in Japan on February 21st and 22nd.
“It’s a great, enjoyable thing for me to play with Eric,” Winwood told Rolling Stone at last year’s MSG show when asked about the hoopla surrounding these historic gigs. “It’s a little bit surprising, the way there seems to be this big amount of anticipation — but I’m certainly very excited about it.” That night’s set featured five out of the six tracks from Blind Faith’s lone album, as well as a cover of Jimi Hendrix’s “Voodoo Child” and “Little Wing.”
If you missed last year’s performance at MSG and for some reason can’t make it to any of the 2009 dates, there is a silver lining: A CD/DVD documenting the 2008 Clapton/Winwood shows is due out this spring. For all the 2009 dates, check out the Smoking Section now.
