I started a Winwood folder this morning in Classic Rock at the Music Message
Center.  Do your best to tell people about it, won't you?

There's a Rolling Stones song called "I Wanna Be Your Man" that was written
by Lennon/McCartney. Are you familiar with the SDG song "I'm a Man"?
Perhaps you heard that.

  Let's not forget 'Mr Fantasy' by Crosby Stills and Nash; it's on the boxed set.
  And I have a version of "Gimme Some Lovin'" done by Richard Simmons'
"band" on Sweatin' to the Oldies 3 that really rocks.  ;-)

Subject:	 Vacant Chair

"Vacant Chair" stands alone:

   I love good basic rock from the Stones to the Stone Temple Pilots but
sometimes you hear songs and you hear musicians that go to other places that
you have never known existed.  Vacant Chair is a great example of this in that
it is a truly beautiful song that can not be classified.  It's not rock, folk, jazz, or
your standard Gabriel and Sting bore.  Whether you know every lyric or think
the song is about an understaffed university, you can't help but be touched and
inspired by each line, note and chorus.  I like it when music amplifies and
clarifies my mood and this song does just that.

 Other songs in this category include the wonderfully unique and
underdiscussed My Love's Leaving, along with Dust,. Presence of the Lord, Let
Me Make Something In Your Life,  and State of Grace.

Do you know where I can find tapes of the Traffic tour last summer? I have
some tradeables, though nothing Traffic/Winwood related.

Subject: 	If Winwood went country ...

  Interestingly enough I actually live in Nashville, the sometimes home of Mr.
Winwood, and I often wonder if the country music scene has influenced him.
What would happen if he did go country?

Roll With It              becomes      More Rolls With It
My Love's Leaving                     My Love I'm Leaving
Vacant Chair                              Vacant Bar Stool
Back in the High Life                  Bring Me Some High Life
Riding High                                 Ropin' High

And if he veered away from country into protest folk then we'd have Talking
Back to the Right.

Subject: 	Nickname

  A dutch reporter gave Steve the nick name 'Steve "I guess I suppose
you're right" Winwood', because of the fact that he is not very good in
talking about his music (he's just talking back to the night).

Subject: 	FAQ questions

Hey, Subscribers,
  Please send me any questions that you think should go into the FAQ.  The
most frequently-asked-question that I actually receive is, 'What is Steve up to
these days?' and of course that's the one question that I can't answer with any
degree of accuracy or certainty.
  I'd really appreciate some help with this!
