Johnny Winter

"As this years holiday gift, Johnny Winter was told by his Guitarist/Manager Paul Nelson (2011 KBA recipient) that he had been slowly lowering his methadone dosage for 3 years without Johnny's knowledge and, as a result, Johnny is completely off of his 40 year addiction as of 8 months ago and is finally drug free! Johnny could not be more amazed, happier and healthier..." [Blues Foundation]
Your dad's favorite legendary blues guitarist Johnny Winter will be spending a large amount of 2011 on the road. He kicks things off this Tuesday, 1/4, at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill, and he returns to the NYC venue three times this month for what has been dubbed "4 Weeks Of Winter...The Johnny Winter Residency" (January 4, 11, 18 & 25). All dates below...

Johny Winter is a blues legend. Good for him!

The first three comments confirm that 2011 should be:

THE YEAR OF THE DEAD HIPSTER

Name one self-involved Indie nerd (barf) or faux Metal troglodyte guitarist who could express and paint in a career what Johnny does in one bar of any solo on Still Alive...?

Thanks to BV for even giving a shit and recognizing that Rock let alone all music is only a tiny bit wider than that with which 90% of BV comment makers seem to be inordinately preoccupied.

Still Alive & Well is one of the most underrated and great *rock* albums of all time.

Now these are really amazing tattoos, LOL.
Never seen something like this.

When will people wake up and see that methadone isn't a solution to heroin? The sentence '40 year addiction...' should tell them something.

The black album & 3rd degree for me!
Jw has never received the recognition he deserves

He should have asked his brother to have Scientology help him.

Awesome to see Winters sober and drug-free for this long and still playing as good as ever.
