Happy 62d Birthday Steve Winwood
The wunderkind of rock and blues, who backed Muddy Waters, Sonny Boy Williamson, and Howlin' Wolf in his early teens. At age 14, he joined the Spencer Davis Group, for which he wrote "I"m a Man" and "Gimme Some Loving." In 1967, he formed Traffic, which he left two years later to start supergroup Blind Faith with Eric Clapton. All that by the age of 20. He remains a remarkable musician.
