Show #60 - Raisin' Cain - Johnny Winter Story (1/28/11)

Our Shows - 2011 Shows


raisin cain - the Johnny Winter storyJohnny Winter is one of the greatest guitar players of all time.  Yet, so little is known about him.  Finally, his story can be told.  In Raisin' Cain - The Wild and Raucous Story of Johnny Winter, author Mary Lou Sullivan reminds us that Winter was a major figure in the rock n' roll of the late Sixties and early Seventies.  But, through drug addiction and misguided managerial decisions, his star faded.  Sullivan spent countless hours interviewing the enigmatic guitarist.  She also tracked down family members, and former musicians and girlfriends to help paint a complete picture of the legendary Texas bluesman.  Icon Fetch talks with Mary Lou Sullivan about writing her labor of love. Listen Now!

JUST ADDED: As a bonus, we talk briefly to the man himself, Johnny Winter, on the way to a recent gig in New Hampshire.  Winter, a man of few words, does tip us off to the possibility of a new Johnny Winter record in 2011.
