Johnny Winter celebrated his 70th birthday with a show at New York’s B.B. King’s. Throughout the show, Winter was joined by special guests Poppa Chubby, Debbie Davies, Mike Zito, Joe Louis Walker, Jon Paris as well as Lance Lopez, who opened the show for Winter. Johnny was also presented with a blues award and a birthday cake during the show.

In honor of the blues guitarist’s 70th birthday, Winter will release True to the Blues on February 25, a 4-CD career-spanning box set featuring well known songs such as “Johnny B. Goode,” “Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo” and “Prodigal Son.” Pre-orders are still underway via Amazon.

Go Johnny! Can anyone explain why this man is not in the Rock and Roll hall of fame? Listen to the seventies live stuff (or just about anything he played on). No one did it better! Thanks Johnny and Happy Birthday.

Happy Birthday Johnny, many, many more! You’ve been a big part of my life with the music I love. It would be very hard to write “THANKYOU” big enough to, say it right!
