This past week blues-rock guitarist Johnny Winter passed away at the ripe young age of 70. Winter is probably not a household name to my children’s generation, but in the late 60’s and the 70’s, Johnny and his brother Edgar were successful and popular, recording and performing with each other and also with their own bands and with other famous performers such as Janis Joplin and Muddy Waters. Johnny Winter played at the original Woodstock concert, but I was unable to find a decent quality video of his performance. I did, however, stumble upon this little jewel from 1974. The audio and video quality are very good for a 40 year old clip. Be patient with this one—Johnny did not have a great singing voice, but hang in there long enough to see his great guitar work. Bonus gift for those who stay on to the four-minute mark, when Johnny switches from lead to rhythm, and lets his rhythm guitarist make a nice little run playing lead. I like to give proper credit, so I will need some help identifying the other members of the band in this video. Rest In Peace, Johnny—your music is immortal.
