Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood – “Little Wing” (Jimi Hendrix Cover) Live
As Good As It Gets!
This high quality video just gave me goosebumps! Among all the other cover versions of numerous artists, this one is a stand out! Why? For one, it’s Eric Clapton AND Steve Winwood. These are two giants in the music industry. They’re both talented, brilliant and for them to pay tribute to the guitar great Jimi Hendrix is simply moving and beautiful in every way.
Eric Clapton has been voted as one of the best guitarists of all time. And he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame not once or twice but THREE TIMES!
In the Yardbirds, Cream, Blind Faith, and Derek and the Dominos, as well as through his prolific solo work, guitarist Eric Clapton has continually re-defined his own version of the blues. From the start, he caught audiences’ attention with his fiery, adventurous and precise playing.
Steve Winwood, on the other hand, is a multi-instrumentalist who can play rock, rhythm and blues, jazz and anything in between. He’s also a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee!
In 2005, Winwood was honoured as a BMI Icon at the annual BMI London Awards for his “enduring influence on generations of music makers.”
These two legends truly did justice to this Jimi Hendrix classic and I love how soulful this tribute is!
