R.I.P. Johnny Winter

17 Jul

I was saddened to hear about the passing of legendary blues guitarist Johnny Winter. Yet another amazing and talented musician who has left us this year. Personally I’m thankful that a spontaneous last minute trip to Jazz Fest this past May provided me the opportunity to hit the late night (and what became legendary) Gov’t Mule and Special Guests show at the Saenger Theatre where Johnny Winter sat in for a few songs.  In what would become one of his final live performances, that was special regardless but now it has a whole new memory for me.

 

Check out this photo of Warren Haynes and Johnny Winter from Dino Perrucci Photography which amazingly captures that special moment on the evening of May 2, 2014.

Countdown to Bonnaroo: 3 Days – Artist of the Day: Warren Haynes

6 Jun

Arguably one of the most talented musicians around, Warren Haynes is simply an ace in the hole; whether it be fronting Gov’t Mule, jamming with the Allman Brothers Band, pulling double duty with The Dead or riding solo (among too many more collaborations to list) you are in for a thrilling ride seeing him live.  Relentless touring and righteous jamming has made Haynes not only a commodity in the music industry but a legend among fans.  That sweet southern rock sound will be one of the Bonnaroo 10th Anniversary highlights.
