Johnny Winter Wants Clapton, Guy, Knopfler, B.B. King For New Album

(Gibson) Blues guitarist Johnny Winter is planning to record a follow-up to last year's Roots album, according to Billboard.

Roots was very well received, and features Winter playing his favorite blues songs together with a guest musician on each track. Winter collaborated with Derek Trucks, Sonny Landreth and Vince Gill, among others.

With the success of Roots, Winter is now putting together a list of the musicians he would like to collaborate with on a follow-up album. Winter told Billboard: "I haven't picked the songs yet, but I'd like to have Billy Gibbons play. I'd like o have Dr. John play. I'd like to have Mark Knopfler play on something. I'd like to have Clapton, B.B. King, Buddy Guy." more on this story
