Steve Winwood at 66: On Tour in the U.S. in June
More on the tour, but first, happy birthday to Steve Winwood, who was born on May 12, 1948 in Birmingham, England.
Steve will hit the road next month for a brief tour out west.
If you happen to catch a show and meet him backstage, be advised: don't ask for an autograph.
According to his official website:
Steve is no longer able to accommodate autograph requests, as a large majority of these have (sadly) ended up on eBay.
Does he still have the chops these days?
According to a concert review from last fall, most definitely.
"Sure he’s got a few lines on his face and some gray around the edges, but the fit and sprightly sexagenarian’s voice is still strong and soulful...."
Happy birthday to a living legend.
