ZZ Top's Billy F Gibbons Tributes Johnny Winter

ZZ Top's Billy F Gibbons has paid tribute to Blues legend Johnny Winter who was found dead in Zurich, Switzerland hotel room last Wednesday (July 16th).

Gibbons had this to say, " When I first saw Johnny perform, I was, maybe 12 or 13, and he was known as 'Johnny Cool Daddy Winter' and we've always thought of him as exactly that: 'One Cool Daddy'.

"Johnny became a dear and passionate friend as well as the accomplished bluesman we have come to admire. It's now a moment for celebration of his brilliance frozen for all time.

"We've lost another of the gifted guitar greats and a truly soulful spirit."
