Unhappy Johnny Winter has passed away

Just read that Johnny Winter has passed away age 70, sad stuff he was an awesome guitarist and very humble guy from what I seen.

He was going to play right near where I live in the next few weeks.
I think 70 was a good run.
RIP Man!

Re: Johnny Winter has passed away

Man....his solo on "Be Careful With A Fool" is a MAJOR reason I wanted to play guitar. My dad played that record a lot when I was a young fella. SOOOOOOO much emotion in his playing. I loved his playing....R.I.P .

Check it out...........
