About Johnny: When you talk about Johnny Winter, you are talking about a person who walked with the originators
of the artform. A man who played Woodstock, jammed with everyone from Muddy Waters to Jimi Hendrix to Willie
Dixon to lbert Collins to John Lee Hooker to Janis Joplin to Steve Ray Vaughan - the list is full of endless icons.
Johnny Winter has been the unofficial torch-bearer for the blues, championing and aiding the careers of his idols like
Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker. Johnny had a special relationship with Muddy Waters and is often credited with revitalizing the legendary guitarist, where Winter produced and played on Waters Grammy-winning comeback
album Hard Again, Grammy-winning I'm Ready (1978), Grammy-winning Muddy Mississippi Waters Live (1979) and
also King Bee (1980). Johnny was inducted into the Blues Foundation Hall of Fame in 1988.
