About Dave Mason
At age 18, the Worchester England native teamed up with Steve Winwood, Jim Capaldi and Chris Wood to form the legendary band Traffic. At 19, Mason penned the song “Feelin’ Alright”. This song has since become a rock and roll anthem, having been recorded by well over 48 artists, the best known version being Joe Cocker. The group’s profound influence over rock music remains unquestioned even today.
Mason departed from the group after their second album. In 1969 Dave headed for the USA to pursue a solo career. He struck gold with the album “Alone Together”, which is considered a rock classic. This was followed by five albums for CBS/Sony including “Dave Mason” and “Mariposa De Oro”, four of which received gold albums. “Let It Flow”, which has gone well over platinum, contained the classic “We Just Disagree”, a top-ten single! In addition to performing to sold-out audiences, Mason performed on a number of albums such as The Rolling Stones’ “Beggars’s Banquet”, George Harrison’s “All Things Must Pass”, Paul McCartney’s “Listen To What The Man Said” and Jimi Hendrix’s “Electric Ladyland”. One of the songs from the “Ladyland” album, “All Along the Watchtower”, featured Dave playing acoustic guitar. This song, written by Bob Dylan, remains a big favorite in Dave’s live show!
