RIP Johnny Winter

I know this is mentioned in the Pool Room, but Winter was one of the very best blues/rock guitarists of all time so deserves a News spot.


Sad sad day (pun intended). 

Frankly l am surprised he lived as long as he did. Battled serious heroin addiction for decades, it was not a fair fight, he lost out to the addiction more often than not. Red hot guitarist though, but after exploding onto the music scene in the late 1960's he never really got the recognition of his contemporaries. That probably had something to do with his addiction making him unreliable.
