Gonna miss that guy. One of my favorites. Last night I played in Pinehurst Texas, and we did Meantown Blues by Johnny Winter. Got home after the gig to find out that rumors were flying about Winters' death. Not long after that, it was confirmed.Johnny Winter, the Texas blues icon, died in Zurich, Switzerland on Wednesday at the age of 70.
The star guitaristóRolling Stone named him one of the 100 best everówas playing till the end, performing his last gig in Austria on Saturday. Since his self-titled album was released in 1969, Winter has recorded and produced dozens of albums of classic rock and blues, including several with his childhood idol Muddy Winters.
RIP, Johnny. You changed the lives of many aspiring blues players.
