Johnny Winter †

Guitar slinger Johnny Winter died July, 16th in Zurich. After devoting most of the seventy years of his  lifetime to the blues and various substances, his frail body eventually cried "enough" briefly before the release of a new album. Johnny played regularly here in Hamburg and watching this cross- eyed albino picking fluid, powerful lines and licks al fresco was certainly something, nobody will ever come close to again. The Guardian wrote the following obituary about him.

" I had the mojo boogie
  It was that mojo boogie
  Gotta be that mojo boogie
                                           It was that mojo boogie, begin to slide on down. "
