John Dawson Winter III (February 23, 1944 – July 16, 2014), better known as Johnny Winter, was 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. 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]
Number 63. That's how much the writers at Rolling Stone know. The awards were nice, but he transcended all of that. A humble man with an inspired gift.
Sorry to hear about this. He was unique and will be missed. It's late now, but tomorrow "Still Alive and Well" gets some rotation.
