Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck all played in The Yardbirds, but not at the same time. Actually, I do think Page and Beck were in the band at the same time, but it wasn't for long.
Winwood was in Traffic, another fantastic band. Also, I think he was in another R & B band, but I can't recall of the top of my head...
Beck replaced Clapton in the Yardbirds.
It was Clapton, Winwood, and Baker who formed the original Blind Faith.
