Johnny Winter

Event Date: 
Sunday, January 6, 2013 - 7:30pm

Johnny's new HD DVD, "LIVE FROM JAPAN" is out now and it's a killer. It was recorded on April 15, 2011, the third night of three sold out shows, at the famed Zepp Tokyo Music Hall in the heart of the world's largest city. The songs Johnny played during his stellar set are soaked with more blues riffs in this one night than most guitar players can match in their career. If you listen closely you'll hear the likes of Robert Johnson, BB King, T-Bone Walker, Chuck Berry, Elmore James, Muddy Waters, Jimi Hendrix and even The Beatles.

On his last CD, "Roots", Johnny goes back to songs that helped shape his legendary talent. Guest players on the CD include, Vince Gill, Warren Haynes, John Popper, Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi. Also, Volume 7 of the acclaimed "Johnny Winter Live Bootleg Series" is still in the Billboard Blues charts. The CD contains special liner notes by Warren Haynes. The tradition of the Texas guitar slinger runs deep, from T-Bone Walker and Clarence Gatemouth Brown to Albert Collins, Freddie King, Billy Gibbons and the late Stevie Ray Vaughan. The one name that ranks at the top of that exclusive list is Johnny Winter, an international ambassador for rocking Texas blues and still going strong! To say that Johnny is "back" would be an understatement. In fact, he never left. He is just better than ever.
