I am a big fan of the Blues, and this caught my eye this morning. The legendary Johnny Winter passed away at the age of 70, while on tour in Austria.

Born in Mississippi and raised in Texas, he was a talented guitarist who helped educate his generation about blues artists like Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker. His brother Edgar (both are albino) had a top 40 hit with the song "Frankenstein" back in the 70's.

Johnny spent most of his adult life battling heroin and prescription drug addiction. Kind of amazing he lived as long as he did.

Just a coincidence but I followed a link on YouTube today and found him playing Susie Q in concert. Quite a loss!
