Johnny Winter Added To Crossroads Guitar Festival 2010 Lineup

Johnny Winter, one of America’s greatest blues-rockers, has been added to the lineup for Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival on 26 June. Born in Texas in 1944, the guitarist formed a band with his brother, Edgar Winter, in their teens. By 1960, he had recorded his first singles as Johnny and the Jammers. Discovering the blues, Johnny played and recorded with Texas R&B outfits through the 1960s steadily building his reputation as a guitarist.
