Ric Grech would have turned 72 today. Ric recorded the only Blind Faith album with Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, and drummer Ginger Baker, a former bandmate of Clapton's in Cream. Their debut album was regarded as a disappointment by critics. The quartet toured the U.S. to support it. Clapton was disappointed with the quality of the music and the performances, and Blind Faith called it quits. Grech and Winwood stayed with Baker to form Ginger Baker's Air Force, a "supergroup" which also included Denny Laine (ex-Moody Blues) on guitar, Chris Wood (ex-Traffic) on sax and flute, and several other musicians. When that group ended, Winwood reformed Traffic with original members Wood and Jim Capaldi, and Grech joined as their bassist. The picture below is Ric with Clapton. Happy Birthday Ric and RIP.
