Fantastic guitarist, especially bottleneck slide.

Surprised Johnny lasted this long considering the amount of drugs, booze and fags he has consumed through the decades,

Rock on, crazy white dude.

I'd long forgotten about him until last night when I watched Guitar Heroes on the BBC, and he was performing Jumping Jack Flash. I wondered what had happened to him, and meant to look it up, but forgot, and now this.

Sad news, but as you say, he probably lasted longer than he could have.

Lots of great Johhny Winter music online, but for something different here's Muddy Waters with Winter on guitar and demented shouting:

Even when he was young (70s) I thought he looked a lot older than his years. Clearly a very good blues rock guitarist but around his time there were so many others doing similar. Appreciated more in the States than here I suspect.....RIP JW.
