Thread: R.I.P Johnny Winter

  1. #1

    R.I.P Johnny Winter

    Sadly, passed away Wednesday in his hotel room while on tour in Switzerland. He was 70. From Woodstock, the great albums with Muddy Waters, and the years playing with brother Edgar, he treated us to some fantastic music over the last 45 years. One of the greatest blues guitarists ever. Thanks for all the memories Johnny, you will be missed.

    RIP Johnny Winter

    RIP

    John Dawson Winter III (February 23, 1944 – July 16, 2014), better known as Johnny Winter, was an American blues guitarist, singer, and producer. Best known for his high-energy blues-rock albums and live performances in the late 1960s and '70s, Winter also produced three Grammy Award-winning albums for blues legend Muddy Waters. After his time with Waters, Winter recorded several Grammy-nominated blues albums. In 1988, he was inducted into the Blues Foundation Hall of Fame and in 2003, he was ranked 63rd in Rolling Stone magazine's list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time".[1]

    If you're gonna go, aren't many places better to spend your last few hours than Switzerland, beautiful landscape. Expensive though.
