We lost a great blues/rock'n player yesterday. Johnny Winter passed away on tour at the age of 70. He used a thumb pick like Chet did and credited Chet as a big influence in his early days of learning how to use a thumb pick and put it in his style of blues/rock'n playing. i've seen Johnny back stage play yankee doodle Dixie while waiting to go on stage at the Limelight theater in downtown Chicago back in the mid 80's. Johnny had lighting speed and a great voice to boot. It's a shame they never put him into the r/r hall of fame. R.I.P Johnny .
