We have lost a blues legend, as Texan guitarist and singer Johnny Winter died in Zurich yesterday.

I need to listen to some of his blues now, since I decidedly am blue. Rest in peace.

I have to dig through my old photos a see if I can find pics I took in a real small club he played at in the early 80s. Best show I can barely remember.

The whitest bluesman is gone.
Thanks for the tunes. You will be missed.
I cranked up a collection of Johnny Winter
tonight after work to go with a 601 Blue.

"Frankenstein" was by Johnny's bro Edgar (Edgar Winter Group) with unique carried keyboard riff.

Sadly, another legend passes. :(

Still sounded amazing when I saw him in a tiny hall in March. My pics here: http://www.cigarasylum.com/vb/showpost.php?p=1945671&postcount=3580

My first Johnny Winter's concert was in 1971 and I saw him last February at Ramshead in Annapolis. He will be missed, RIP Johnny.
