This weeks bassline was requested by Thomas from Kaiserslautern (Germany), who attended my Blues Rock Workshop earlier this year. The song was recorded for Johnny Winters second studio album (first one with Columbia records) simply called "Johnny Winter" in 1969. The bass was played by Tommy Shannon, who later later joined Stevie Ray Vaughan's backing band "Double Trouble" in 1981.
In 1999 I had the privilege to play as support act for Johnny Winter on a big festival in Germany with my band "Sunnyland Bluesband". Here a few pictures of my very young looking self from that gig.
