Mr Winter


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
It was somewhen at the end of July this year when I received the massage from a friend that Johnny Winter died on the 16th of the month.
First I just thought, well another one from a dying breed has gone. But after a while I realized how much it touches me. Johnny Winter was always on my playlist for decades and will be in the future.
Well, I set down with my guitar and these lines and the melody came to me. It helped me to get over the feeling that times are changing so fast and that nothing lasts for ever. Finally I managed to get the recording done.
I hope the spirit of true music and true feelings will survive and I hope you like the song.

Lyrics
Have you heard the news - Another good one has gone /:/
The world will be colder without Mr. Winter
But at least what we got left are his songs

He touched my soul from a thousand miles away - And I pinned up his picture at my wall /:/
He used to be with me when I was happy
And he was there when I was about to fall

It feels like another piece broke away from the island - I hope the spirit will not tumble will not fall /:/
May the rest who´s left behind
Could make the world a little better after all

Sad sad news - Another big one has gone /:/
The world will be colder without Mr. Winter
So I sit back - pour myself drink - turn on the stereo
And listen to one of his songs

The winter is gone...
Nice tribute there... soulful playing. Saw him last in a little theater in Toledo Ohio with Muddy Waters. Nothing will beat that... One wonders what John could have accomplished without the debilitating effects of the recreational drugs he was so fond of for so many years...

Blues heaven
wow - that must have been a trip Johnny Winter and Muddy together in the „hard again“ times. Wish we could have a beer together. Would like listening to your first hand stories. Really great and I appreciate your comment even more. Maybe one day, when we all united in blues heaven, we could make it happen.

Nice tribute, well-sung
This is a very nice tribute to one of the music world’s great artists, and you do an excellent, soulful, vocal and guitar performance yourself.   I really enjoy it when an artist takes the time to explore what a piece of music has in it.   This you did here.

real world
Words like yours are the motivation to keep on playing and that means a lot to me. JW stood and still stands for people living in a real world and in communities like macjams we all can share this spirit.
Thank you very much.

A great tribute
to ' Mr. Winter and there's some really nice playing going on here....love the Blues, esp'. this style of playing and singing. It's true that when something touches or moves us, that is the time to write down or play our instrument, because the best stuff can come from those sad times......as well as being cathartic. I don't know how I missed your music up to now and I'm sorry for that, but I'll keep my eye open in the future, a all best wishes and regards M

thank you
Thank you very much for the kind words. The blues got something almost ruminant and I agree with you a 100 percent that Music making in particular is kind of mind freeing.
With an ongoing age the music as itself stands in the focus and in this community it is a true pleasure to share the work with people like you.

A very fitting and listener friendly piece of music. Such a defined and clean guitar break, loved the vocals too.
