R.I.P. Johnny Winter

Texas blues legend Johnny Winter, known for his lightning-fast blues guitar riffs, his striking long white hair and his collaborations with the likes of Jimi Hendrix and childhood hero Muddy Waters, has died. He was 70.

Huge loss for music.

    One of the greatest guitarists and live performers it ever was my privilege to see & hear. When I was in high school, my best friend and I had seen him that night at the Forum in Montreal. We wanted to follow him from show to show, to catch him live every night through out the length of his tour. A master on the fret board and one of the classiest guys around.

    Thank you Johnny. Maybe I’ll see you again some day, out there among the stars!

    I was privileged to see/hear him and brother Edgar several times in the 60s/70s. One of the musical perks of living in Austin.
