    Hard to believe he's in his 70's...

    Damn, that means I'm in my 60's.

    Still love the White Trash version of Tobacco Road.

    Edgar Winter’s White Trash was a badass R&B band. I like most of what he’s done.

    I saw Edgar headline a triple bill.
    I believe it was 1973.
    Bad company opened.
    Then Lynyrd Skynyrd
    Edgar Winter closed.
    Concert was 17 bucks.
    Rochester NY.
    I got my moneys worth that night.

    I got to see Edgar Winter live in Frankfurt, Germany, in the very early 1990's.

    Rick Derringer on guitar, Edgar Winter on synth, sax, vocals, and percussion.
    Chuck Leavell on keyboards, Charlie Torres on bass, and man oh man, I'm drawing a blank on the name of the drummer.

    Anyway, it was a fantastic show!!

    :)

    I saw Edgar more than any other musician in concert in the 70's. Got some fantastic slides of him I need to get digitized.
    You are right Tobacco Road is the best.

    I saw him a few years ago at a very intimate club in Annapolis, MD called the Ram's Head On Stage. Great show and a great band, very tight, not too loud.

    Happy Brithday!!

    That’s just the stuff that made it to the radio. He made LOTS of better music iMHO.

    It's Tommy Shannon in this case who later played with SRV. Randy Jo Hobbs did serve a stint with Johnny and Edgar though. Looks like Randy Jo on the "Frankenstein" video.

    Edgar is so incredibly talented. He was as big of a musical force as brother Johnny.
