Stevie Winwood: Sixties Soul Survivor

Chris Welch, Melody Maker, 8 June 1974

"STEVE'S only 25 you know. When people criticise him and say he's not as good as he used to be in the old days, they should remember that most guys in bands only make it and reach musical maturity when they're 26. It's amazing to think that while Steve has been playing for a long time, he still has two years to go before he reaches the age of say, Led Zeppelin, when they first made it." So said brother Muff Winwood.
