RIP Johnny Winter.

One of the most iconic bluesmen died yesterday age 70. Johnny Winters was on tour in Europe and died in a Zurich hotel room.
Included in Rolling Stone magazine's top 100 guitarists (63) Winters heavily influenced the career of Muddy Waters producing several of his later albums including the 1981 release King Bee.
Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, former lover Janis Joplin and The Stones were just some of the many whose lives intertwined with Johnny Winter.
Rest In Peace.
Obituary.
Lance.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
