Another Bluesman Passes Over

Post by Strummer07 » Thu Jul 17, 2014 11:54 am

Sad to relate that Bluesman Johnny Winter has (Reportedly) Passed over to the Big Gig in the Sky.

Age 70 he has been poorly for a while and was reported as deceased at his home in Zurich Switzerland.

with a new Collab album due out in September..."Step Back" .. with Collabs with Clapton, Bonamassa, Gibbons

Love his own quote
"I just hope I’m remembered as a good blues musician."
Reckon we can do that for him

Thanks for the Music Mister Winter ..Rest easy now ! guitar_fire::

From "Where's Eric"

and as it mentions this track ..........

it seems appropriate to post this as a tribute ( I think its from the Crossroads festival)
