aka : Johnny Winter
(23 février 1944 – 17 juillet 2014)
“I’m not good enough to be playin’ much acoustic guitar onstage. Man, you gotta get so right; I mean, the tones, the feel, the sound. Plus, acoustic blues guitar is just that much harder on the fingers. I really appreciate when someone can blow me away with live acoustic blues.” (Johnny Winter)
L’hommage de Buddy Guy sur sa page Facebook : “We are so sad to hear the news that our friend Johnny Winter passed away yesterday in Zurich, Switzerland. He will always be remembered as one of the finest blues guitarists to ever grace the stage. Our deepest and most sincere condolences go out to his family and friends. Rest peacefully, Johnny.”
Le prochain album de Johnny Winter devrait sortir le 2 septembre. Invités : Ben Harper, Eric Clapton, Dr.John, Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top), Joe Bonamassa, Lesly West, Joe Perry(Aerosmith), Brian Setzer (ex-Stray Cats).
