Johnny Winter, 1944-2014

I just saw on that Johnny Winter passed away yesterday at the age of seventy. My late brother Don introduced me to Winters' music when I was in high school, I think, and I pretty much wore out the two vinyl Johnny Winter albums I had with me through college. I especially liked "Be Careful With A Fool", which had one of the most amazing lead guitar solos I've ever heard.

Farewell to one of the best guitarists and bluesmen of his generation. -- PL

I have not heard of his passing till I just read your blog entry. No one could play the blues like Johnny Winter. He had a very unique style. How very sad. He will be missed.
