I only found out last night I was related to a very well known musician.
A little way down the line mind, he was my grandfathers cousin. Shame I never got to meet him really.
Jim Capaldi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I also found out that my granda's uncle was one of the original voices for Popeye, and one of his other cousins founded the music store 'Macari's'.
Here's one of the Traffic songs that Capaldi sang. This entire album is great. Interestingly, Capaldi wrote most of Traffic's lyrics, and even continued as a lyricist for most of Steve Winwood's solo albums. I could have seen them on their '90s reunion tour and missed it.
