Winwood and Clapton are friends since the beginning of their careers, but a few decades ago, they formed the supergroup Blind Faith in 1969 with Ginger Baker and Ric Grech.

The band was short-lived, owing to Clapton’s greater interest in Blind Faith’s opening act Delaney & Bonnie & Friends; Clapton left the band at the tour’s end. However, Baker, Winwood and Grech stayed together to form Ginger Baker’s Air Force.

The line-up consisted of 3/4 of Blind Faith (without Clapton, who was replaced by Denny Laine), 2/3 of Traffic (Winwood and Chris Wood, minus Capaldi) plus musicians who interacted with Baker in his early days, including Phil Seamen, Harold McNair, John Blood and Graham Bond.
