Clapton, Joe Perry, Ben Harper Among Guests On Jonny Winter Album

(The Blues) Johnny Winter has worked with Eric Clapton, Dr John, Ben Harper, Mark Knopfler, ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons and Aerosmith's Joe Perry on his second Roots album.

The follow-up to 2011's covers set has just been completed, with a release date tentatively set for June or July. Two further similar albums, Roots 3 and Roots 4, are being planned.

Winter's manager and guitarist Paul Nelson tells Billboard: "We started this series of traditional songs that Johnny grew up on. I knew it was an easy formula for him to digest. It was educational." more on this story
