RIP, Johnny Winter.

A native of Beaumont, Winter was a fixture at [Austin’s] Vulcan Gas Company in 1968. …In one infamous story, Winter and his rhythm section of Uncle John Turner and Tommy Shannon were to open for the Muddy Waters Band for two nights. Muddy and band drove all day to get to the Vulcan and arrived just as their headlining set was to start. They performed a rather perfunctory hour and change set, which meant it was only about 11:15 p.m. so Winter played a set after Muddy, who was in his dressing room and came out to hear that amazing blues guitar playing. Muddy called a friend on the payphone, held it out for a minute of Johnny’s music, and got back on the line. “He white!,” Muddy exclaimed. “He REALLY white!”
