Seven days: Okay folks, just one more week to go before Johnny takes the stage with Derek Trucks at Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival in Chicago! Johnny, Paul & Co. are looking forward to this major step in Johnny’s return to form. JohnnyWinter.net and LiveBluesWorld.com will be covering the action!
Uncle John Turner benefit gigs: Once he’s done at Crossroads, Johnny will catch a southbound and ride to Texas to headline two benefit gigs for former bandmate Uncle John Turner, the powerhouse drummer who is currently battling Hepatitis C and is in need of a liver transplant. The first will be in the San Antonio area on July 31, with another the next night in Austin.
And there’s more! Click here to see a photo essay by Johnny fan Tami Goldsmith, who captured Johnny in action at the Canyon Club in June. (Thanks, Tami!) There’s also a great YouTube moment over at LiveBluesWorld.com. See you in Chicago!
