Turner, like Winter, grew up in East Texas. His hometown of Port Arthur and the neighboring state of Louisiana came by the blues naturally and Turner absorbed it all. It must have been quite the day when Turner sat down with Winter and a stack of vinyl, elucidating the differences between field hollers and Chicago blues, Delta rhythms and Texas shuffles. Winter got it all and the Johnny Winter Trio, with Tommy Shannon on bass, went on to make blues history. Somehow, Turner’s role went largely unacknowledged. In November 2006, Uncle John Turner reunited with Johnny Winter and Tommy Shannon at La Zona Rosa, their first live performance together in more than 20 years. Almost exactly two months ago today, I was in Chicago eulogizing my former husband Rollo Banks.
John Dawson Winter III (February 23, 1944 – July 16, 2014), known as Johnny Winter, was an American musician, singer, songwriter, t, and producer. Best known for his high-energy blues-rock albums and live performances in the late 1960s and 1970s, Winter also produced three Grammy Award-winning albums for blues singer and guitarist Muddy Waters. After his time with Waters, Winter recorded several Grammy-nominated blues albums.
John Dawson Winter has been a troubadour for the blues for over 40 years, plying his razor sharp licks from the Texas roadhouses where he first cut his teeth i. In addition to being a world-class guitarist, Winter won a Grammy in 1977 for producing Muddy Waters’ landmark comeback album, Hard Again. The team of Muddy and Johnny stayed together long enough to win two more Grammys, for 1978’s I’m Ready and 1979’s Muddy Mississippi Waters Live. In the ’80s, Winter was inducted into the Blue’s Foundation’s Hall of Fame and recorded three albums for Alligator, including the excellent Guitar Slinger, before settling in at his current home of PointBlank records
Johny Winter - True To The Blues: The Johnny Winter Story (2014). Leading a trio that included future Double Trouble bandmember Tommy Shannon on bass and drummer Uncle John Turner, the guitarist dirties up a couple of originals with some Delta mud. Bad Luck and Trouble sizzles with some slippery National steel guitar licks in an acoustic-blues framework while Mean Town Blues is a rockin’, boogie-based stomper with plenty of wiry fretwork and a Mississippi blues vibe. Recorded in 1968 and released before his Columbia Records debut, The Progressive Blues Experiment remains an untapped vein of down ‘n’ dirty blues as only JW could deliver
