Jim’s inspiring story has many layers, and his many interests outside of music didn’t always get the attention they might have deserved. Click on the links below for three alternative essays specifically about Jim, and the fourth for the Traffic biography released with the announcement of the band’s accession to the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame.



Jim was socially and environmentally conscious, expressing his concerns through lyrics. He supported raising awareness for children in Brazilian favelas. The Jim Capaldi Music & Culture Centre was created in his honor after his passing. The center aims to prevent risky behaviors in children at risk of drug addiction, gang violence, or teenage pregnancies through music and community-building. Donate or learn more via the link below.
