Steve Winwood hat diese Worte und dieses Foto zum Tod von Spencer gepostet:

“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.”

Habe die Spencer Davis Group 2004 beim Eschweiler Musik Festival
als authentische Band ihrer Zeit erlebt.
Es war ein tolles Konzert was ich nun umso mehr wertschätze.

Vielen Dank Spencer Davis
