Johnny Winter Shares His Golden Rule

(The Blues) Johnny Winter may have been hailed as one of the greatest guitarists of all time but the 69-year-old doesn't believe he's educated himself a great deal since he was a teenager.

He tells the Journal Gazette: "I don't know if I can say I've learned much. I still play the same way I did when I was 15." He says he'd been happy playing ukulele before picking up guitar, but had to make the change when the rock'n'roll revolution came and he couldn't make the new music sound right on a uke.

Asides from that, it's been business as usual although there's one golden rule he's established from early on. "It's no fun playing with guys that aren't any good," he reflects. "I've always worked with good musicians." more on this story
