“I play better when the crowd likes it” ~ Johnny Winter. Listen to the interview now!

Earlier this afternoon I interviewed Johnny Winter and Paul Nelson, who is Jonny’s manager, producer of his latest album, “Roots” (which I highly recommend) along with his upcoming album “Step Back”, due out in April — and he plays guitar in Johnny’s band.  Paul is at the right on this photo:

Johnny and Paul talk about their influences, the Blues, sound, performing, recording …  Johnny even tells us how he practiced screaming when he was young.  Plus they give us a feel for just how hot this upcoming show on Jan 31 will be.

Thanks to everyone who submitted questions in yesterday’s post.  Johnny answered questions by Ricardo Fernandez and Tom Hauck in this interview.  Listen below:


There are still a few tickets left to see the great Johnny Winter at Beverly’s Larcom Theatre on Friday, Jan 31.  This show will sell out, so if you want to go, get tickets here.

    Great job, Peter – thanks! Looking forward to the show. I first saw Johnny perform in 1970 at the Ludlow Garage in Cincinnati with Rick Derringer. He was awesome then, and still is.

  2. Dave Moore says:

    Memory lane here for sure thanks :-)

  3. Ricardo says:

    “This guy kind of wrote a book…” jajaja! Looking forward to the show. Thanks again for bringing quality to Beverly.
