Johnny Winter Dies In Austrian Hotel Room

by Mark Cartwright

Johnny Winter, the brother of Edgar Winter, and a fabulous bluesman, passed away in a hotel room yesterday in Austria. He was 70 years old. After years of addictions, including alcohol and heroin, Johnny went clean and sober several years ago. Word has not surfaced as of this writing on the cause of death. One can only hope it was not due to relapse. Here's Johnny doing his thing.
