Johnny Winter (legendary Rock & Blues guitarist)

Legendary blues guitarist Johnny Winter became a major star in the late '60s and early '70s. Since that time he's confirmed his reputation in the blues world by working with Muddy Waters and continuing to play in the style. Johnny formed his first band at 14 with his brother Edgar in Beaumont, and in the late 60's Winter formed a band with former members of the McCoys, including second guitarist Rick Derringer. It was called Johnny Winter And. He achieved a sales peak in 1971 with the gold-selling "Live/Johnny Winter And." He returned in 1973 with "Still Alive and Well," his highest-charting album. Constantly shifting between simple country blues in the vein of Robert Johnson, to all-out electric slide guitar blues-rock, Johnny has always been one of the most respected singers and guitar players in rock and the clear link between British blues-rock and American Southern rock. Still recording, touring, and writing a new book,"Raisin Cane," he is just better than ever.
