Steve Winwood's 'Nine Lives'

Rock guitar legend Steve Winwood describes his latest album, Nine Lives, as "the opposite of a concept album." Each track tells a story drawing from the different styles that shaped his career. The record moves from blues and soul — reminiscent of his past bands Spencer Davis Group and Traffic — through the world-music rhythms of his solo work. In an interview with host David Dye, Winwood talks about his history and his new album.

This segment originally aired June 13, 2008.
