Winwood, Clapton 2007 CrossroadsWe can never give enough love to Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood, two esteemed members of British classic rock royalty.

The two originally recorded the Winwood-penned “Can’t Find My Way Home,” in 1969 as bandmates in the supergroup Blind Faith, which rose out of their previous bands, Traffic and Cream, respectively. (They were joined by former Cream drummer Ginger Baker and bass player Ric Grech. When Blind Faith disbanded after just the one album, Grech joined Winwood in the re-formed Traffic. Got it?)

This performance was from Clapton’s 2007 Crossroads Guitar Festival in Illinois, and also features Derek Trucks and Doyle Bramhall. Clapton and Winwood also teamed up several months’ later for three shows at Madison Square Garden.

    Great song, great collaboration… while Winwood seems to be very comfortable with a guitar I prefer him on the keyboards
