"After his time with Blue Sky Records, Winter began recording for several labels, including Alligator, Point Blank, and Virgin, where he focused on blues-oriented material. In 2004, he received a Grammy Award nomination for his I’m a Bluesman album. Beginning in 2007, a series of live Winter albums titled the Live Bootleg Series and a live DVD all entered the Top 10 Billboard Blues chart. In 2009, The Woodstock Experience album was released, which includes eight songs that Winter performed at the 1969 festival. In 2011, Johnny Winter released a new studio album titled Roots on Megaforce Records. It included Winter's interpretation of eleven early blues and rock 'n' roll classics and features several guest artists (Vince Gill, Sonny Landreth, Susan Tedeschi, Edgar Winter, Warren Haynes, and Derek Trucks).
"Winter continued to perform live, including at festivals throughout North America and Europe. He headlined such prestigious events as the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Chicago Blues Festival, the 2009 Sweden Rock Festival, The Warren Haynes Christmas Jam, and Rockpalast. He also performed with the Allman Brothers at the Beacon Theater in New York City on the 40th anniversary of their debut. In 2007 and 2010, Winter performed at Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festivals. Two guitar instructional DVDs were produced by Cherry Lane Music and the Hal Leonard Corporation. The Gibson Guitar Company released the signature Johnny Winter Firebird guitar in a ceremony in Nashville with Slash presenting."
The world is a toll-free toilet
Our mouths neurological ass0s
And psychologically speaking
We're in a state of mental diarrhea
Talking sh*t a mile a minute
Or in a state of constipated notions
Can't think of nothin' but sh*t, and in this world of stinky futures
Sh*tty memories and constipated 19 now-nows
Emerges from the hiney of your head the doo doo chasers
Bringing you music to get your sh*t together by
Saw him live in the early seventies. Did the rock n roll medley with the duckwalk then turned the lights down for one blue spot on a stool and just played solo blues with a slide. Incredible. One of the best I've seen.
I've got binders full of women
and a one point plan.
