My theme song for 2021.
Dang right! I love Johnny!
My new avatar!
Was this written by Rick Derringer?
BTW, this is a really similar amp tone to what I hear from " Memory, Pain" ( 'serve me right to suffer...)
the first song on Sscond Winter.
I don't know what that distortion is, it's 'gritchy', not really pleasant ( maybe not a tube amp?) but it works with Johnny Winter.
- just don't think it is the cranked Twins we associate him with...
According to wikipedia it looks like it.
Had a guitar teacher when I was about 14, got me to learn Cheap Tequila and Mean Town Blues.
Proud owner of a Firebird here too
(Mixed up Johnny and Edgar ... Damn you YouTube for allowing me to link Frankenstein!)
saw him live at the Texas Opry house when I was about 14. Rode the bus got there early n thought man we got here early and got front row freeking seats!!
oh no when we saw the band come out and put in earplugs we knew we was in trouble. now made sense why no one was sitting in the front rows..
I vibrated for days after this one bro!!! Johnny had a history of having great bass players too
Texas was and still is great for music.
and FYI johnny's favorite amps were the 70s Music Man 410 65watters.
It's OK, These guys are both amazing musicians.
On Johnny's ' Second Winter' album which features Edgar too, I'm still thinking 2 of the songs on there were sung by Edgar- just something in the tone...
(Edgar- organ, piano, synth, sax, percussion, vocals- a true hyper-achiever!)
I loved it back in the day, still do!
I really wish he was ......
great musician by all standards
notice the pic above the poster is Johnny standing for his whole encore and at the end of Hwy 61 he did Castles made of sand ( hendrix) that he knocked out of the park
Damn that boy was loud!
I saw him on my18th birthday, almost 46 years ago.
I hope my ears quit ringing soon!
Alas, he is no longer Still Alive And Well.
We saw him in 1989 in DC
at the Warner Theater
-Danny Gatton opened up! ( seen him before)
- Johnny Winter in the middle
- Buddy Guy was the headliner
I was kind of hoping all 3 would have jammed a song or two together, but nope
* but seeing Johnny live was a thrill of a lifetime
Johnny Winter blew mind way back when. He could play that guitar like ringin' a bell.
I know R.D. also did this solo, and didn't change much.
Johnny, just smokin' on the Johhny Winter album:
*edit- and playing an Epiphone Crestwood/Wilshire OR a Fender Duo-Sonic on these first records
(I wasn't there, just what I've read, when Googling)
You would figure, Edgar must be a great guitar player. Johnny had a beautiful voice, he wasn't all scream
Johnny and Edgar do a fantastic job singing ( and playing) " Please Come Home for Christmas" - just emotional and beautiful.
Genuine soul and passion for the blues.
I did not know what I was even hearing as a 14 year old kid ( 1973), when I first heard Johnny from a buddy's Panasonic cassette deck- in HS.
He didn't know what we were listening to eitter ( we didn't know anything about 'blues'), he just got the cassette because he heard ' Johnny Winter is good!' from someone older...
We were just instantly attracted to this music and that voice!
