    Never thought I'd see it, but Johnny Winter, who usually sits down because of a bad hip and health problems, is standing up during a live performance!

    I hope he's around and playin' his ass off for a long, long time. As much as I love his electric playin' I would love to hear him do a CD playin' his National. I think he's as good as anyone I've ever heard playin' that kinda stuff.

    Wow, that is so great to see this morning! I was at Crossroads and it was sad to see him like that, but he looks MUCH better and sounds much better in the video!

    Happy to see and hear this. Johnny W. was a big inspiration to me back in the day. Here's to his continued recovery and health. GO Johnny GO GO GO.

    I don't know, it makes me feel sad and old. Reminded me of Mickey Mantle trying to run out a ground ball his last year. I have been a major fan since Johnny Winter And (not the And Live)

    And I was not happy with the hotshot on the strat either.

    The guitar stolen early this year was the white Erlewine with a humbucker (that could be split) in the bridge and single coil in the front. JW may have been playing that one for 20 or so years. It has not been recovered. He's currently playing the nearly identical black one.

    As sad as the theft was, at least his Firebird that he plays slide on was not stolen. That guitar dates back to 1970 for Johnny. It's also the one that was replicated in the Gibson Firebird Johnny Winter Signature series from 2008.
