Cool 6/7/69 - Blind Faith's only UK gig

On this day in 1969, June 7, the British supergroup Blind Faith - Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker (late of Cream), Steve Winwood (late of Traffic), and Rick Grech (late of Family) - played their only major U.K. gig, a free concert in London's Hyde Park. Afraid that Blind Faith would be seen as a reincarnation of Cream, Clapton was pleased when a fan at the lip of the stage yelled out, "It's not Cream, Eric, it's Blind Faith. Play what you like!"
