Johnny Winter

“Bluesman”

 
John Dawson Winter III (born February 23, 1944)
— known as Johnny Winter — is an American blues guitarist, singer, and producer. Best known for his high-energy blues-rock albums and live performances in the late 1960s and ’70s, Winter also produced three Grammy Award-winning albums for blues legend Muddy Waters. Since his time with Waters, Winter has recorded several Grammy-nominated blues albums and continues to tour extensively. In 1988, he was inducted into the Blues Foundation Hall of Fame and in 2003, he was ranked 63rd in Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time”.

I have always been a big Johnny fan!!

And now, sadly, on the day that this painting went to press, word was passed down that Johnny died in Switzerland, July 16, 2014.
.
From Fox News… Texas blues legend Johnny Winter, known for his lightning-fast blues guitar riffs, his striking long white hair and his collaborations with the likes of Jimi Hendrix and childhood hero Muddy Waters, has died. He was 70.
.
It’s so sad to lose such a talented man, but he gave it his all right to the end, and I’m honored to have been able to meet him, and to do this painting. The photo reference and inspiration for this piece was provided by Tom Hazeltine of Lexington, MA. Thanks again brother.

RIP Johnny!

    Always been a huge fan of Johnny. Got the opportunity to see him at Moody Auditorium on the SMU campus back in the early 70’s. I have maybe all of the albums and a few cd’s he released. Love the blues. He is missed every day.
