Johnny Winter was one of the most respected guitarists in the world and at the same time a vocalist and composer. Winter was an artist who was close to rock’n’roll, blues and rhythm’n’blues. He specialized in guitar slide technic. At the turn of the 1960s and 1970s, fans wondered who Johnny Winter or perhaps Duane Allman of the Allman Brothers band is better in this technique. Johnny Winter began his career playing with his brother in Texas clubs. He was the most active in the 70s of the last century.
In 2003, Rolling Stone magazine ranked him on the 74th place in the list of top 100 guitarists of all time. His discography includes eighteen studio albums. The first one was released in 1968, The Progressive Blues Experiment. The last studio album was released in 2011 Roots. Winter also produced three of Grammy’s award-winning albums of the legendary bluesman Muddy Waters.
He was an artist with whom they recorded and what the greatest sought. It was not him who searched, but it was the one who is searching. Especially after the commercial and artistic success of the album “Roots”. Many musicians wanted to touch his aura, observe his playing method, feel his feeling.
