It was on this day in 1969, February the 8th, when Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker, and Steve Winwood announced the formation of a new group. With the addition of Family’s Rich Grech on bass, the quartet became Blind Faith. In a bit of cynical move, the supergroup called 'Blind Faith' in hopes their fans would just go along with things. They would eventually have a major hit with "Can't Find My Way Home" and a Cream-like jam entitled "Do What You Like," but in the end, Eric Clapton quickly grew bored and after one legendary show in England (a massive festival in Hyde Park) and a brief U.S. tour, Blind Faith threw in the towel. You can see highlights of that Hyde Park show below.
