Johnny Winter Passes

Johnny Winter has reportedly passed away while on tour in Europe. A premier blues and rock guitarist since the 60s he defined TEXAS HEAT guitar playing. Had the pleasure of seeing him over the years and of course he always brought it. LEGEND! He obviously hadn’t been in great health over the past few years but he went out (as Ronnie Van Zandt would say) with “his boots on”. (on tour) The band in the sky gets better every year. In one of his last interviews he remarked that I just hope I’m remembered as a good blues musician.” Definitely!
