Yank it or Crank it? – ‘Can’t Find My Way Home’ by Blind Faith
One of the very first ‘super-groups’, Blind Faith included Steve Winwood, Ginger Baker, Eric Clapton and Ric Grech.
The group came together after the breakup of Clapton’s band, Cream. Two members of the band, Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker, just couldn’t get along and Clapton grew tired of the fighting…so he left.
Meanwhile, Eric’s friend Steve Winwood was unhappy in his own band, the Spencer Davis Group. So he left that band to form Traffic. While on a break from Traffic, Winwood jammed with Clapton, they liked the sound, so they formed Blind Faith along with (ironically) Ginger Baker and Ric Grech who left his own band, Family, to join the group.
‘Can’t Find My Way Home‘ was the biggest hit the band ever had. Yank it or crank it? Vote now!
