The classic Jimi Hendrix’s song “Little Wing” was covered many times, but this one is a stand out! Why? Simple, because was made by Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood, two amazing rock and roll legends.
Check it out:
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.
