Artistfacts®: You can leave comments about the artist/band at the bottom of the page.
They were one of the first Rock Supergroups. Clapton and Baker had been in Cream, Winwood was in Traffic and The Spencer Davis Group, and Grech was in a group called Family.
They released only one album, and started touring before it came out. They sold out most of their shows based on the reputations of the band members. This candle blew out quickly: after their first tour, the band broke up.
Their first concert was a free show at Hyde Park in London. Over 35,000 fans showed up.
Clapton and Winwood performed together in a band called Eric Clapton's Powerhouse in 1966. (thanks, Bertrand - Paris, France)
The live shows did not live up to their standards and disappointed many fans. They had very little time to rehearse, and had poor chemistry as a band.
Clapton named the group. Blind Faith is what the fans had as they came out to see them without hearing any of their music first. It was also the name of the photo on the album cover.
They did not have enough original material to fill the sets at their concerts, so they played songs from their old bands (Cream, Traffic, The Spencer Davis Group), to fill.
The album cover showed a young girl holding a model spaceship. She was topless, which caused a great deal of controversy. An alternate cover with a band photo was issued for stores that refused to stock it.
Clapton formed Derek and the Dominos with members of Delaney and Bonnie's group after Blind Faith broke up. Delaney and Bonnie were touring with Blind Faith.
Winwood sang lead on all the tracks on the album.
Their sound was inspired by The Band's album Music From Big Pink.
Vince Gill, Emmylou Harris and Lyle Lovett are just a few of the artists who have looked to Clark for insightful, intelligent songs.
Neal Smith - "I'm Eighteen"
With the band in danger of being dropped from their label, Alice Cooper drummer Neal Smith co-wrote the song that started their trek from horror show curiosity to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The former Dead Kennedys frontman on the past, present and future of the band, what music makes us "pliant and stupid," and what he learned from Alice Cooper.
