Do I Have A Treat For You Guys.

At some point while you are watching this, you are just going to say DAMN! to yourself under your breath.

For those of you who have been around a while, you just may remember Johnny Winter, older brother of arguably better known Edgar Winter.

John Dawson Winter III (February 23, 1944 – July 16, 2014), known as Johnny Winter, was an American musician, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer. Best known for his high-energy blues-rock albums and live performances in the late 1960s and 1970s, Winter also produced three Grammy Award-winning albums for blues singer and guitarist Muddy Waters. After his time with Waters, Winter recorded several Grammy-nominated blues albums. 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".[1]

For those of you who are too young and unfortunate enough to have never heard of ol' Johnny, here is one that you won't forget.

This is ass kickin' music.

You can thank me in the comments.

Crank this shit up.

unfortunately your video is from a time beyond when he had gone off the edge.

That has to be a scary rare album these days.Take damn good care of it!
Yeah, you can tell he is on the downhill slide in the video but he could still play better than a few hundred others from that era.

I have a bunch of old vinyl LPs that I no idea of the value. Original Sgt Pepper, Hums of the Lovin Spoonful, Early Chicago,Paul Reveir and the Raiders. The list goes on and on. I haven't even looked in one box for twenty years. I got to get this USB turntable cranking again.
