His variety show was on when I was a kid, and I found his playing mesmerizing - one of the reasons I became interested in guitar. I'm still not a good player, lol, but that's OK - I enjoy it anyway.Yeah! It’s like Al Di Meola, John McGlaughlin fast alternate picking. Very impressive.
Man, does that ever hit the spot. What an excellent show that must have been to see live.Winwood is well beyond a good player, he’s an excellent verging on great guitarist. As well as being one of the best rock B-3 players around, and as you said, a great singer.
Here’s one of my favorites - the 2007 Crossroads festival, when Winwood blows a mostly-unsuspecting crowd away:
One of the last pre-COVID live shows I attended was a tribute to the 50th Anniversary of the White Album. Here's CC from 3 rows back.Only found out relatively recently that Christopher Cross was such a good player and actually played the cool solo on Run like the Wind (which I always assumed was done by a studio pro)
also he owned SRV's No.1 strat before SRV, which, makes him super-cool in my book !!!!
Who else has surprised you ?
