Are there any Johnny winter fans on this site? I think he's one hell of a guitar player and vocalist. I saw him in April. He sounded great but looked terrible. He made Keith Richards look like Zeus. Any thoughts on him?

I don't know if he was in the group, but I know he played with Edgar a lot. They're brothers. ;)

I love Johnny Winter.

Very, very good guitarist, in my opinion - one of my favorites.

My favorite albums by him is probably "And", but everything by him is great.

I have this one live album of his (I forgot the name of it), but Edgar comes out to join him on stage and they totally rock out.

He is a terrific blues guitarist. Scary looking man though.

My sentiments exactly. I love the live version of "Mama Talk to Your Daughter" on the second disc of the deluxe version of Second Winter. Everything he does is great though, he's a very unique bluesman.
