Known for connecting British blues-rock with American Southern rock, Johnny Winter built a 35-plus year career out of his novel take on blues. After getting a big break in 1968 with an article from Rolling Stone magazine, which praised his album The Progressive Blues Experiment, Winter released two more highly regarded albums before the end of the decade: the self-titled Johnny Winter and Second Winter. His tracks, Frankenstein, Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo, and Boot Hill highlight Winter's, now famous, approach to blues.
Winter's illustrious career has allowed him to perform with greats such as Stephen Stills and Jimi Hendrix. His work has also proven it withstands the test of time, with the release of a top-ten blues album Live in NYC '97, and I'm a Bluesman in 1998 and 2004, respectively.
Winter’s latest work includes the album ROOTS (2011) featuring notable guest artists: Vince Gill, John Popper, Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi; the DVD, Johnny Winter – Live From Tokyo (2012) DVD in HD; and Live Bootleg Series Volume 8 (Limited Edition) (2012).
