Off for a week, Steve Winwood/Santana
I’m on vacation for a week! This means no comic update for that time, so I hope you can forgive me while I’m having fun away from the computer. The highlight of my trip will be tomorrow, when I’ll be at the Centre Bell in Montréal to see my all time favorite musician, Mr. Steve Winwood. His career spans over 4 decades and he never stopped evolving as an artist. He might be best known on the internet because Eric Prydz’s hit techno song,”Call on Me”, which sampled Winwood’s own “Valerie”. During the 80s and early 90s, he arguably wrote and performed the most mature in the pop genre, while he touched on about every musical style you can imagine during the other decades. From the Blues and RnB roots of the Spencer Davis Group to the psychedelic rock of Traffic and Blind Faith, he’s worth discovering not only to see if he’s your cup of tea, but to hear that he had the exact same black blues singer voice when he was a mere 16 years old.
