Only the other day I was watching old footage of him on a best of Old Grey Whistle Test. He and Edgar were very exciting influences.

I wasn't his biggest fan but he'll be missed. Here's something tasty:

Johnny was great and thankfully I saw him a few times, including a great show in the 1970 in Liverpool's impressive St George's Hall.

Like Wesley I've never been a big fan but I love I'm Yours And I'm Hers. Which is going back a bit. The Stones opened with it at Hyde Park '69. RIP Mr. Winter. I do believe life wasn't always easy for you.

I particularly love his cover of Dylan's "Highway 61 Revisited". RIP.

Saw him play one...it was amazing how he could be all over the place so effortlessly, and smoothly. Even if you didn't like the Blues, you'd have to perk up and have your ear caught, and then you'd listen closer.
See ya' Johnny!

saw him once in 1970. Everybody woke up when he hit the stage. Running all around, knocking mic stands over.Dressed in black, long white hair flyin' all over. A buddy of mine sold him a Gibson Firebird that day. Hot Tuna followed, Van Morrison closed. A fine fest indeed.
Rock in Peace, JW

I saw Johnny three times in the late '60s and early '70s, including at the 2nd Atlanta Pop Festival in 1970, which was attended by an estimated 400,000 people. I was no more than 50 feet from the stage during Johnny's set. He later came back onstage and jammed with The Allman Brothers Band during their closing set.
