Johnny Winter, R.I.P.

One of the best blues rock guitarists ever, Johnny Winter, has died at the age of 70. As a young man, Winter was a vision: a tall, whip thin Albino, wearing black clothes and quite often a cowboy hat as a nod to his Texas roots. He was a sight to see and an amazing player. He died as he lived, on the road. He will be missed.

Here's a 1974 teevee appearance with Johnny rocking the joint in a top hat:
