I was lucky enough to see Johnny Winter 3 times. Each time I saw him he was excellent!
First time was with Muddy Waters and James Cotton in 1977. Then I saw him in at the
Woodstock Reunion concert in 1979. I also saw him was in West Orange, NJ
at "Creations." (Uncle Floyd's TV studio was next door) :mrgreen:

Very nice.
I never saw Johnny in the early days.
I did finally see him in 1998, then again in 2012 w Edgar Winter and Rick Derringer.

Cool! I never did get to see Johnny later on.
His death really shocked me. Yes..RIP Johnny.

Saw him many times, first time was on his "Guitar Slinger" tour after he had signed to Alligator Records. One of my favorite shows that I was lucky enough to attend was at Aragon ballroom in Chicago in '85 where Roy Buchanan opened.

Anybody else here from the Chicago area attend that show?

The guitar he played at Woodstock (Fender Electric XII, a 12 string) made me curious enough to look it up after I saw him play it. He strung it with only six strings.

Saw him twice, once in 1974 at the Spectrum in Philly and in 2012 with Edgar and Rivk Derringer. He had a bad back in 2012, but he was on fire in1974.

His show that year in the Spectrum ended the tradition of open-seating 'dance concerts' because some morons were throwing firecrackers from the upper deck seats to the floor. No one got really hurt, but it was dangerous...

It would be a tragic error on our part to not pay a little respect to Johnny Winter on this page. He was one of my favorites since I discovered his music at around 14 or 15 (and that was a long time ago). Our version of Highway 61, as shitty as it was, owed way more to us trying to channel Johnny than having much to do with Dylan. Polecat Boogie recorded a version of "Rock N Roll Hoochie Koo" that I'm pretty sure never got released. Again, it owed way more to Johnny than it did to Rick Derringer (no offense meant - I love some Rick Derringer and his production and playing with Johnny should never be underestimated). Johnny was the rare cat that once he did a song, forget it - he owned it. I think that's true for his Dylan covers, his Stones covers, and, yes, even his blues covers. There are three voices that I admire in music to the point of actually trying to learn something from them. Those voices belong(ed) to Alice Cooper, Levon Helm, and Johnny Winter. Johnny's voice was deceptive in that it sounded so raw and ragged that most people just thought there wasn't much to it. YOU try to sing them songs like he did; it'll make you feel silly that you thought you could pull it off. One of my favorite memories of Johnny was seeing him in the early 90s in an old theater. He played SO FUCKING LOUD that the plaster started falling off the ceiling. Seen Motorhead dozens of times and never witnessed that at one of their shows. My second fondest memory has to do with actually getting laid by an older chick when I was barely old enough to drink 'cause she liked my Johnny Winter t-shirt. Of course she stole it, but I had a couple more and it was well worth it. So, my hat is off to you Mr. Winter, as it always has been. Your music taught (teaches) me a lot. You made my ears ring, my heart sing, and even got me laid once. What more could you ever ask from a person? Much love.
