Traffic_Steve Winwood Caricature. Shown here at the Olympic Recording Studio session (London, England) of “Mr Fantasy”, recorded at 1 o'clock in the morning, November 1967.

The band Traffic was formed in April 1967 by Dave Mason (age 21), Chris Wood (age 23), Steve Winwood (age 19), and Jim Capaldi (age 23), shown here left to right.

They began as a psychedelic rock group and diversified their sound through the use of instruments such as keyboards like the Mellotron and harpsichord, sitar, and various reed instruments, and by incorporating jazz and improvisational techniques in their music.
Traffic's singer, keyboardist, and guitarist Steve Winwood was the lead singer for the Spencer Davis Group at age 14. Then formed Traffic.

Their hit songs: “I'm A Man”, “Gimme Some Loving” (Spencer Davis Group), “Dear Mr. Fantasy”, “Feelin Alright”, “John Barleycorn”, “The Low Spark Of High-Heeled Boys”, “Can't Find My Way Home” and “Presence Of The Lord” (Blind Faith).

After 2 years, Dave Mason left the group on a solo career.

After disbanding in 1969, during which time Winwood joined Blind Faith, Traffic reunited in 1970 to release the critically acclaimed album “John Barleycorn Must Die”.

After Blind Faith, Winwood was in and out of Traffic, then eventually went on his own solo career.

Traffic were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004.
