Steve Winwood is one of the more influential yet highly underrated guitarists of all-time. If you name drop him amongst a group of people under the age of 35, there's a good chance 95% of the crew wont know who he is. The people who do know him are ardent followers, though. And looking at it from an elevated perspective, it's better to have a small yet dedicated group of followers as opposed to a wide group of fans that blindly follows its musical heroes in whatever direction is laid out for them. Winwood has been a member of the influential group Traffic as well as Blind Faith, and the friendships he made in these two groups have managed to produce some extremely listenable blues based rock music. Winwood's solo career pulls heavily from Traffic and Blind Faith as well as his respectable solo career that he has been chugging away with since his group's implosions in the mid '70s.
