Derek Trucks Remembers Johnny Winter

(TeamRock Radio) Allman Brothers Band's Derek Trucks has told how he reacted to the death of Johnny Winter - and he's described the late icon as "an uncle and a kindred spirit."

Winter passed away on tour in Switzerland last month at the age of 70. He and Trucks had performed together on many occasions, and the outgoing Allman Brothers Band guitarist tells The Blues Magazine: "Johnny was a strong presence in my life long before I met him and got to know him.

"He was one of the handful of musicians I really studied growing up. It's a major loss. I don't see that many musicians with that type of musical integrity that are trying to carry it on." More on this story.
