Steve Winwood played the Cross Insurance Arena (w/Petty), and last year former bandmate Dave Mason played a small club across the street.
Today we remember the late great Christopher Gordon Blandford 'Chris' Wood (24 June 1944—12 July 1983) a founding member of the English rock band Traffic, along with Steve Winwood, Jim Capaldi, and Dave Mason. The death of two close friends, Free’s Paul Kossoff and former band-mate Rebop Kwaku Baah followed by that of his (by now, estranged) wife laid very heavy on Chris. While working on a solo album that was to be titled Vulcan, Wood died in 1983 of pneumonia in Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, England.

On this day (Sept. 24) in 1967: Traffic made their live debut when they appeared at Saville Theatre in London; formed by former Spencer Davis Group vocalist-keyboardist Steve Winwood with three 22-year-old friends, drummer/singer Jim Capaldi, singer/guitarist Dave Mason & reed player Chris Wood; the group was intended to be a cooperative, with the members living together in a country cottage in Berkshire and collaborating on their songs…(this very cool clip from later the same year…)

It reached on the Billboard 200 Top LP's chart. In late 1968, Traffic disbanded, guitarist Dave Mason having left the group for the second time prior to the completion of the Traffic album.

MAY 1967 (46 YEARS AGO) Traffic: "Paper Sun" b/w "Giving To You" (Island WIP 6002) 45 single is released in the UK. "Paper Sun" was the British band Traffic's debut single, released in May 1967. It was a hit in the United Kingdom. It is famous for its time-typical sitar riff, played by Dave Mason, and its soulful vocals by composer Steve Winwood. The B-side, "Giving to You," was later released in a modified version (4:20) on their album Mr. Fantasy. The original B-side version, which opens with a brief vocal section, was later released as a bonus track on a CD reissue of the album. The album version omits the vocal section, and begins and ends with overdubbed spoken parts (probably by Chris Wood).

Dave Mason singing "we just disagree" oh to see Dave with Steve Winwood again!
funky cover of Traffic's "Feelin Alright". Traffic were a band made up Midlanders such as Steve Winwood from Perry Bar and Dave Mason from Worcestershire. They allegedly came up with the name in the old Elbow Room in Aston.
Dave Mason is a singer/songwriter who spent time in the band Traffic with Steve Winwood & wrote some of their great tunes.
Finally! 21 years after putting my size 16.5 WIDE foot in my mouth can I tell Dave Mason what a tool box I felt like! Here's the post I just sent him! LOL! Happy Gobble Gobble to ya sir! Dave! when I met you in Virgin Islands- I embarrassed the living crap out of my self! Before Dave (owners son/entertainer, 1991) went on the stage- we all gathered at a little bonfire on the beach.We were on the beach in front of Iggy's. Well- at the beach, Dave or someone passed you a a guitar and started winging out your song, We just disagree. After your 10-20 seconds of jamming that- I said, you sound just like that guy who sung the original...what's his name? He was a one hit wonder in the day.You replied...Yeah -Ummm that was me- Hi I'm Dave. I NEARLY SHAT MY SELF! Then I realized you were in no you WERE TRAFFIC, etc. You laughed and I apologized profusely! Then we sung old time rok and roll together -and I kid you not..your voice behind me was more powerful than the amps behind you. I let you know in my opinion Ste ...

Happy birthday to both Dave Mason, who turned 66 yesterday, and Steve Winwood, who turns 64 on Saturday..
I after an embarrassing threesome with Dave Mason & Steve Winwood - but I only came late because I got stuck in Traffic.
Groovin' on Traffic, as it's Dave Mason's birthday. Added bonus--it's getting me primed for Steve Winwood tomorrow :)
Traffic's 1971 release, The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys was an artistic peak for the post-Dave Mason version of Traffic. Jim Capaldi contributed the heated Light Up or Leave Me Alone, and his writing with Steve Winwood added a breadth and complexity to the approaches to the songs that lift the album overall. Other highlights include Rock and Roll Stew, Many a Mile to Freedom, and Rainmaker, but the title track is best of all -- more than 12 minutes of jazz/jam inflected art rock that comments on the evils of the music business.
