He is a sad shell of the guitar God that prowled the stage like a madman!

Buzzy don't count Johnny out just yet. The recent photo of Johnny in Guitar World and the announcement from his manager/band leader, Paul Nelson that Johnny is in fact drug free are positive signs that while Johnny may not ever return to his former wildman glory days he may regain his prodigeous (is that a word?) skills and continue putting out great music. His recent biography and the new release Roots show there is plenty left to interest fans. God bless Johnny Winter.

I saw him for the first time in 2010 at the Granada Theater in Dallas, and it was a great show!! I'm seeing him again on Feb. 1 at the same place, but this time I have front row seats!!

I had just got a smokin new stereo system. It was a Friday night and a buddy called me up and told me I needed to get this album. I was with my girlfriend. It was pouring and windy like crazy outside. But we headed to the bus stop anyway. Went to the record store about 30 minutes away and they had just gotten them in that day and were putting them on the shelves.

We got back. Rolled up two monster ones, each put on a new headset, turned down the lights and put the album on.

Yeah baby........the rest is history! The girlfriend is long gone but I still got the album! Worked out just fine. (maybe I should look for her on face book and see what she is up to)

One of my favorite acoustic slide guitar songs is Johnny Winter's song Dallas from his self titled Columbia album. Just incredible.

Had the pleasure of seeing Johnny in the late 70's, early 80...and around the time that the Captured Live Album was being put together....one helluva show...seen him 4 more times since then, once with George Thorgood, Johnny is a true legend

Thanks for the head's up on this.

If you will remember, for a good while Derek Trucks in the early days never showed much emotion on stage (nothing wrong w/ that). But when I attended a Beacon show and JW came out to guest (4-8-07), Derek looked like the cat who swallowed the canary, and could not suppress his joy to be playing w/ him. I really liked Derek for that.

He was real good. Dust my Broom. Rock on, Johnny.

Letterman loved it, and says, "Lets go get some cheap speed, donuts and coffee and take a road trip!"

that one even got a smile out of johnny. i too agree he was good. for those who say he's a shell of his former self, well jeezus - he's almost 68 years old. lets see how many of you are still jumping around at that age.

David Letterman has been a fine and gracious host to many musical acts, including many from our "famABBly". He's obviously a music fan.

A couple of weeks ago, Dave and Paul were down here in Birmingham. David (also a motor-head a la Leno) was in town (I think) to drive cars around the track at the Barber Motor Speedway (park or whatever it's called). Both he and Paul showed up at WorkPlay to catch Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit! Dave is a fan of both Isbell and his former band, the Drive By Truckers. He's a big fan of the Truckers version of Eddie Hinton's, "Everybody Needs Love".

Dave is awreet with me!

I missed the johnny winter segment but before that they made a big deal out of steak n shake being next door now, I wondered what was there before? was that where that other store was that served food & dave was always running on with the owner (whatever his name was) or was that someplace else? I would have paid more attention to that block when I was there a couple months ago instead of running off to see coldplay on the today show...

I like this story. I ESPECIALLY like the fact that you got on the bus, rode 30 minutes to the record store, bought it, and took the bus 30 minutes back home. You probably invested more than an hour and a half of your time to obtain a record you really wanted. You made a conscious effort. As opposed to turning on a computer and making a few taps. Which I do too.

I know I'm sounding like an old fart, but stories like this really drive home how much my generation (I think - I'm 54) LOVED music. As opposed to viewing it as just one more "diversion option" or disposable item. With no emotional connection to it whatsoever.

Thanks for reminding me.

Rich, being of your generation, I agree with ya. Myself and my bud used to go every Saturday to Hickory because the small town I'm in had very little "good music" to check out the new music, check out the concerts coming up, buy our music ...get cold beer and a fattie, and cruise around to the{I guess} 8 tracks, bring home the vinyl, and start trying to learn licks.
It was a different time...but I miss it.

If all I had to do was sit down and "click" when I began my musical adventures (listening/playing in bands) I never would of wanted to go to the record stores or even concerts. Life would really suck

I was at that show front row center (actually leaning on the stage) about 6 feet away from Johnny. Derek was standing to Johnny's right and I remember watching Derek as much as Johnny. It was obvious that Johnny, who, like most albinos, has very poor eyesight, wasn't going to respond to cues, and I think his hearing is also not the greatest, so it was pretty funny watching Derek trying to get Johnny's attention. Both Derek and Warren were having the time of their lives playing with JW. He can still play - especially that Elmore James slide thing like he did last night. He did a killer version of Mojo Boggie that night at the Beacon. A night I'll always remember for other reasons too.
