I saw him play a small club in Jamesburg, NJ in the 70's. He lit the place on fire!

I read that TrueFire.com had a Johnny Winters course giveaway yesterday. I had the chance to check it out and was impressed by the innovation that he offered to the guitar community.

He will be missed!

When i was in my final year of highschool 73- 74 I had acquired the old family car - a 65 Pontiac. I was on my way to my part time job. after school. The car in front of me stopped to turn onto a small access laneexit to go back up a one way street that led to the town library. Not a usual place for traffic to stop, but i should have been paying better attention. i rear ended the car and watched as it rolled away, carreening of a guard cable strung along the road, veered back toward traffic and then back to the guard rail, protecting a long steep drop to the river.

Through all this the steam was rising from my rad, the speakers that had been placed on the back shelf of my boat, in typical first-car fashion were up in the front seat now, but still playing ----- Johnny Winter`s version of Rock and Roll Hoochy Coo - at very loud volume. That scene is burned on the Hard-Drive.

I liked JW`s blues. He will be missed.
