Jim Capaldi Remembered

Jim Capaldi Remembered

Today, 28th January 2012, marks the anniversary of the passing of Jim Capaldi. Seven years after his death the Traffic co-founder, drummer and lyricist's songs and legacy continue to live on.

'Some ten years ago I encouraged Jim to gather all his favourite lyrics together into a book. He had started selecting songs and writing notes to go with them and had asked his friend Robert Plant to write a foreword but, sadly, in 2005 he ran out of time to finish. One of his last wishes was for me to complete what he had started and I promised him I would.' - Aninha Capaldi

Genesis and Aninha Capaldi are honoured to be making Jim Capaldi's vision a reality. Upcoming release MR FANTASY will showcase Jim's beautiful lyrics and include contributions by family and friends, including Tom Petty, Pete Townshend and Dave Mason, by whom he is forever missed.
