    Traffic is what I know him most for... He's played with Steve Winwood and Dave Mason on and off over the years.

    one of my favorite yearly influences in bass/drum unity.

    Dear Mr Fantasy, Play Us a Tune
    Something to make us all happy.
    Do anything to take us out of this gloom
    Sing a song, play guitar, make it snappy
    You are the one who can make us all laugh
    But in doing that, you break out in tears
    Please don't be sad if it was a straight mind you had
    We wouldn't have known you all these years

    RIP Jim Capaldi

    Hidden Treasure
    (Winwood/Capaldi)

    Take a walk down by, take a walk down by the river
    There's a lot that you, there's a lot that you can learn
    If you've got a mind that's open, if you've got a heart that yearns

    If you listen to, if you listen to the water
    You will hear the sound, you will hear the sound of life
    There's a million different voices, there is happiness and strife

    Message in the deep, from a strange eternal sleep
    That is waiting there, that is waiting there for you
    Like hidden treasure

    :(

    Traffic was so cutting edge. I'm crushed! It's so odd because one of the radio stations was playing Dear Mr. Fantasy today. So odd to hear it.
