339. Steve Winwood

There should be little doubt that Steve Winwood has earned his place in the Hall for his work in Traffic. What has been in doubt is whether he deserves induction a second time for either his work with other bands or as a solo artist. Although Winwood achieved a lot of success during the 80’s for his solo work, it lacked the Soul and Blues infusion that his efforts with Traffic, Blind Faith or the Spencer Davis Group. Although the overall career of Steve Winwood was brilliant, his solo career may not necessarily be Hall worthy. Having said that, should the Hall wish to induct him a second time (for either solo or other bands), it would not come out of left field.         The Bullet Points:   Eligible Since: 2002   Country of Origin: United Kingdom (Birmingham, England)   Nominated In: Never   NIHOF’s Favorite Album: Arc of a Diver (1980)   NIHOF’s Favorite Song: While You See a Chance (From Arc of a Diver, 1980){acepolls 401}
