Steve Winwood: “I’ve known Spencer since I was about 13–he would have been about 22. I was playing a show at Birmingham University with my brother and his band. Spencer who was a student at Birmingham, was playing with a small group of musicians. We met and the the seeds of The Spencer Davis Group were sown. Spencer was an early pioneer of the British folk scene, which, in his case embraced folk blues, and eventually what was then called “Rhythm and Blues”. He influenced my tastes in music, he owned the first 12-string guitar I ever saw, and he was taken with the music of Huddie “Lead belly” Ledbetter, and Big Bill Broonzy. I’d already got a big brother who influenced me greatly, and Spencer became like a big brother to me at the time. He was definitely a man with a vision, and one of the pioneers of the British invasion of America in the sixties. I never went to the U.S. with Spencer, but he later embraced America, and America embraced him. I feel that he was influential in setting me on the road to becoming a professional musician, and I thank him for that. Thank you, Spencer”.

I hope that she inspires fans everywhere to fearlessly pursue their own dreams and limitless potential.”
* Lily Allen invece griffa e sponsorizza un bellissimo vibratore in partnership con Womanizer.
* Jack White e gli acquisti di strada. “Earlier this week, a 26-year-old busker named Matt Grant was performing on the streets of Edinburgh when a woman accosted him and smashed his acoustic guitar. A video from the event went viral, and somehow the story made its way to Jack White (despite the rocker not apparently owning a phone). In response, White bought Grant a guitar”. APRI.
