Johnny Winter 1944-2014

Johnny Winter, legendary guitarist and one of the most recognizable icons of Texas blues and rock passed away at the age of 70 earlier this week after a long career.

In a documentary released this year entitled “Johnny Winter Down and Dirty,” he laughed, “Made my first record when I was 15, started playing clubs when I was 15. Started drinking and smoking when I was 15. Sex when I was 15. Fifteen was a big year for me.”

According to Wiki, at age 10 he and his 8 year old brother Edgar played on local TV in his hometown of Beaumont Texas.  Johnny Winter performed for an astounding 60 years, and he died while on still on tour.



RIP, Johnny. You made our roadtrips a hellalotta fun.

What’s in Marcellus Wallace’s briefcase? I had to axe Mr. Google for the reference, found that it has to do with a scene in the movie Pulp Fiction. Now that I know, this kinda makes sense.

THIS was a clever prank.

“I told my brother he had a bug on him.”

You can’t see The Great Wall of China from space, but you can see this.

Not sure what this means, but it’s kinda cool.

Babe Magnet Patchwork
THIS should be entirely awesome once the grafts heal. Jack it up, flare the fenders,  give it some oversize wheels with custom baby moons and paint it flat black; then tint the windows, toss in  some neon and a sound system that plays nothing but R&B and funk instrumentals, and the pavement will rock.

Saturday Matinee – Oorutachi, Pokey LaFarge, The Crows & Elwood Blues

Bizarre, and with a great soundtrack. Oorutaichi [via].

Pokey LaFarge performing “La La Blues” at Music City Roots live from the Loveless Cafe on 20 April 2011 [via]. So what should follow that? Maybe something in C Am F & G…

The Crows‘ “Gee” from 1953 may have been the first R&B crossover hit, and it was a B side experiment.  Ike Turner earned the prize for the first rock and roll  hit “Rocket 88″ in 1951, recording as Jackie Brenston and his Delta Cats . Y’all have heard that classic, or should have by now, and James Cotton did a kickass version.

More recently Dan Akroyd took a shot at it and pulled it off.

Have a great weekend, folks.
