Spencer Davis has died age 81 from a heart attack at his home in California.
Well, I cannot tell you what The Spencer Davis Group meant to me. “Gimme Some Lovin'” featuring Stevie Winwood and his brother Muff Winwood is a high point of all of rock and roll. So is “I’m a Man.” There is nothing you can compare this with now. I feel like a part of my childhood died.
Spencer Davis was Welsh, but lived in northern California because when you’re a great rock star, you need sunshine and warmth. Rest in peace. You gave us great gifts.
