This Weekend: Johnny Winter Tribute
The great Johnny Winter passed away in July, but September saw the release of one last album, STEP BACK, revisiting some of the music he loved as a kid. He has never played better. A cadre of guest stars appear on it as well, backing him all the way, guest stars like Brian Setzer, Eric Clapton, harp master Jason Ricci, Dr. John, Joe Bonamassa, Joe Perry, Ben Harper, and more. Plus: The Blues Brothers Horns are in the mix! Elwood loves him some of that, and dips into the audio archives for a taste of the great conversations he has had with Johnny over the years. Plus: music from brother Edgar, John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters…. And new music from San Diego soul queen Missy Andersen.
Air Dates: October 4-5, 2014.
