Thread: Duane & Johnny Winter

Marcuccio - 11/6/2004 at 07:59 AM

What's the relashionship between Duane and Johnny Winter?

We know that Johnny performed Mountain Jam with the Allmans, at Atlanta on 5/7/70, he played some cuts on Gregg Allman's "Laid Back" (there's a good version of Wasted Words), and he introduced the ABB shows many times.

I know that Duane once saw him and said that he could play slide better than Johnny.
I read an interview in which Duane said: "Johnny Winter? Good musician and good bottleneck all around".

More recently Johnny said in an interview: "I loved to play with Gregg, and Duane too!"


PaulMcFadyen - 11/6/2004 at 02:06 PM

Johnny's guest appearance on Mountain Jam at the Atlanta Pop Festival on 7/5/70 is captured (albeit in heavily edited form) on the Atlanta Pop CD, of course - unfortunately, for much of the time (and the whole tape captures him better) he's playing in E minor blues scale, as opposed to the E major scale that the song was written around; the effect is jarring and, I suppose, one reason why he's mixed-down and the song so heavily edited.

I believe he also makes an uncredited appearance on Stormy Monday too, though I'd have to dig out my CD, to check on that one.


Marcuccio - 11/6/2004 at 06:47 PM

Oh, thanks Paul!

There's some interviews in which Johnny speaks about Duane or The ABB? I found very little on the web.


bluedad - 11/6/2004 at 07:47 PM

Johnny Winter on "Laid Back"?
I am not sure that is correct.


salcapitano - 11/7/2004 at 06:04 AM

He appears on Gregg's One More Try cd. Wasted Words.

Actually I beleive Duane is qouted as saying after seeing JW live ,that he could" cut what he was doing"JW got a lot of press back then for being the next thing and Duane simply meant that he could keep up with him. Later Duane said he preferred Jw's records to his live show..me too!! but their paths must have crossed a bit back then because JW played the fillmore that infamous march and Johhny was a road warrior back then as well. The couple of times i caught Winters shows then they were short ,45 minutes 70 max..

What said Johnny about Live At Fillmore East?

Mark and Marcuccio, this is the first thing I thing of when I see Duane and Johnny mentioned in the same sentence. Here's the whole passage from the special Duane issue of Guitar Player mag, 1981.10; the writer is Jimmy Johnson, Muscle Shoals guitarist, engineer, later producer:

I remember a specific incident when we were in New York, doing Aretha {1969.01}. It was Duane's first time there to do sessions--this was around late '68, maybe the first of the year. He says, "Hey, let's run over to the Fillmore East to hear this new guy." Johnny Winter was playing his premiere performance in New York {1969.01.10-11, the headliner being B.B. King, with Terry Reid and then Johnny as support}, and the publicity was unreal.

We got up in the balcony, and at that point Duane had never really expressed that he wanted to go back to live performing. But that night it just got too much for him. I'll never forget what he said--this was about midway through: "Johnny is really good, but I can cut him." Of course, I knew what he meant. Johnny was great--this ain't belittlin' Johnny--but I think he was giving Duane the confidence that he could make it, because he knew he could play, he could cut it.

He looked over at me. "Jimmy," he said, "do you see that stage down there? Next year by this time, I'm going to be down there." I looked at him and kind of did one of them double-takes, and I said, "You know, I think you will." And he was {1969.12.26-28 the Allman Brothers opened for Appaloosa and headliners Blood, Sweat & Tears). I get chills when I think of that night.

http://www.fillmore-east.com/showlist.html

{Perhaps somewhat appropriately, before the Allman Brothers closed the Fillmore East on 1971.06.25-27, the previous headliners were Johnny Winter 06.24 and B.B. 06.18-19.


Bingylandmusic - 11/7/2004 at 07:43 PM

I can only imagine it took balls or a lot of confidence back then to step up to the guitar alter and take on the elite group of players that were dominating the scene in the late sixties . The English had been getting the lion share of the credit with Beck,Page, Clapton. Townsend , Green and it was a new breed of players like carlos,, JW from america that were now getting some credit and of course Jimi & Bloomfield for bringing the blues home. Duane was a liitle late on the scene and the brothers themselves were late on the Blues rock scene that they would eventually lay claim to being the most innovative of. My first impression of Duane around christmas 70 was he sounded like Bloomfied and the band were another blues rock knock off, much like ten years after(although iI liked the first record alot). Of course I had changed my mind drastically by 71 but even then I was surprised to see them doing statesboro, stormy Monday "you don't love me" but of course Duane did it better than anyone before IMHO


i thought Johnny winter was capable of great things but I 've just never though he achieved them while his production and involement of Muddy water's Hard again" is about the closest he came to creating something great.. again IMO..

Marcuccio - 11/7/2004 at 08:33 PM

Thank you very much Peter, I know you're great!

In an interview, Michael Messer said that Johnny was heavily influenced by Duane's slide playing.

I've never read a real Johnny's interview about it.

Boys you know something more?


playallnite - 11/8/2004 at 12:51 AM

Didn't Scott Freeman/Midnight Riders right something to the fact of that Johnny Winter was leary of goin on after The Brothers and skipped a show because of this? (it could be in Bill Graham"s book too). I remember seeing the band in 71 at the Spectrum in Phil. the line-up that nite was : Redbone,ABB,Johnny Winter And, I definately remember Duane sticking around leanin on the amps, sippin a beer (probably a PBR) watchin Johnnny Winter.


lespaul71 - 11/8/2004 at 07:18 PM

Yeah thats right, but you know, some people consider Johnny Winter Jimi Hendrix's equal, which he is excellent of course, but comparing to Hendrix is kinda off I think


Marcuccio - 11/9/2004 at 12:02 AM

quote:

So, it's not true?

My personal opinion is that Johnny changed his style between '70 & '71.
If you hear "The Progressive Blues Experiment" and "Second Winter" his slide style is really different. Not to cited "Captured Live" in which he really remembers me Duane at certain moments.

Don't you think?


Stephen - 11/9/2004 at 04:07 PM

Playallnite, Red Dog mentioned this in his book also -- I guess he and Duane talked prior to a Fillmore gig, and they changed the arrangement so that JWA went on before the Brothers.


Marcuccio - 11/10/2004 at 11:48 AM

It's interesting to note that many slide players don't admit any Duane's influence, but they have it!

Johnny in my opinion is one of them (scuse me boys but I think so).
But onestly he rarely admit also the influence Hendrix had on him.....
So, if he cited as his influences only Muddy, Elmore and B.B., I think that Johnny always is not really onest.....

I'm sorry


playallnite - 11/10/2004 at 05:16 PM

thanks Stephen, the more I think about it ,I'm also sure it's mentioned in Bill Grahams bio/book too.There is also a humorous passage in the book about the ABB's first appearance at the F. East, they were on the bill w/Blood Sweat and Tears who happened to have thier families, friends,etc. there to watch. Evidently the Brothers patryin lifestyle clashed with the upper crust members of the BS&T entourage,and BS&T vowed never to be on the same bill with them again. I remeber they took a lot of ribbing for the" naked in the creek photo" people would say what you guys gonna do on stage.get naked haha. But when they kicked off their set it silenced those people.


SidneySmith - 2/1/2005 at 05:31 AM

For rare photographs of Duane, Johnny Winter, and more, check out the web site: www.rockstarphotos.net OR www.sidneysmithphotos.com


Jack - 2/1/2005 at 02:16 PM

The story of the Allmans showing up in the old Econoline van with tatty Marshalls to play the Fillmore East is in Bill Graham book.The Fillmore staff had seen the photos of the creek session and nobody was impressed until they set up and " whipped into a little jam on You Don't Love Me" . That's when they got everybody's attention.

Reading that BST took exception to the Allman's fun cracks me up.I grew up listening to David Clayton Thomas in various bands and he's no choir boy, must have been the cello and french horn section...


DarylM - 2/3/2005 at 03:20 PM

Speaking of Johnny....his album `THE PROGRESSIVE
BLUES EXPERIMENT' is being reissued very soon; I've
forgotten the exact date....and if you haven't picked
up the `deluxe version' of `SECOND WINTER', what
are you waiting for?


bluefinch - 2/3/2005 at 08:04 PM

I don't really hear any Duane influence on Johnny's playing. Those two might be my favorite two guitar players ever, but I don't really think they're too similar. Duane had a lot more nuance than Johnny.


JeffB - 3/8/2005 at 09:19 PM

I can say this.... saw the ABB open for Johnny Winter in Columbia, SC....... Johnny was in his prime.... when the lights went down and you heard him cut a riff, and then the lights come up and he's in that black coat with tails and a top hat.... you thought the devil had come to play for sure. And Duane, along with most of the band, watched the whole show from the wings (with his tall Bud). I think he liked what Johnny was doing. Straight ahead R&R.


PeachNutt - 3/9/2005 at 12:34 AM

I can easily imagine that Duane had enormous respect for Johnnys playing....
I think Duane must have apprecated all real talent.... Johnny was the real deal back when.....no doubt about it...... I also recall reading that seeing Johnny & Edgar together gave Duane faith that he & Gregg could make it too....


TopDroog - 3/9/2005 at 06:02 PM

Johnny Winter is probably my favorite straight (as opposed to slide) lead blues player, and has been for quite some time. I also love his acoustic slide playing. His electric slide playing sort of "stays between the lines," in my opinion (is that a nice way of saying he always does the same thing?).

Butch mentioned a good while back, maybe two years ago, that after Duane's passing, there was an out-of-town guitarist hanging around Macon hoping for an audition . . . some speculated that it might have been JDW, but that was never confirmed.

I personally don't think it would have worked. I always liked Johnny best as the leader of a trio, or maybe with a little harp or piano thrown in.


Stephen - 3/9/2005 at 09:46 PM

"Seeing Johnny & Edgar together gave Duane hope that he and Gregg could make it too."

That must've been Johnny's surprise appearance on Edgar & White Trash's Roadwork album.
"People keep askin' me -- where's your brother? -- Hey Johnny!"


Rusty - 3/9/2005 at 10:22 PM

White Trash! That was an outfit! Johnny, Edgar, Rick and Jerry with some kick-@$$ horns! "Roadwork" is one of my all-time favorites. I'd love to hear the ABB (with horns) cover "I've Got News".


Stephen - 3/9/2005 at 10:33 PM

That would be a killer bro! -- you're quite right.
I'm sure getting that album out this evening -- what they do with Tobacco Road, of all cuts, too -- slammin' stuff.

Yes, I agree, Johnny is an excellent player!
But probably Michael Messer said the truth when he cited Duane as a "little" influence on Winter.
If you hear ABB "Live at Fillmore East" and Johnny's ".....and Live" the differences between this two great slide players are enormous, not only in "style" (Duane is much better, more original).
But if you hear Johnny's slide after 1971, he change some tones, and he start to be much more aggressive and adveturous.
Between the years I've never read something really interesting about Duane in Johnny's interviews......and it's strange because I'm sure that Johnny had a TOTALLY respect for Duane!


PeachNutt - 3/12/2005 at 07:15 PM

Duane had seen Johnny & Egdar long before the Fillmore East time frame....
I believe both Duane & Gregg had seen the Johnny & Edgar while they still unknown players on the "chitlin" circut....probably back in the Allman Joys & Hourglass time frame.....
I have to agree with TopD....in terms of americans playing straight electric real blues there was Jimi, Johnny & Mike Bloomfield,..... Johnny really was the man......
but no one ever touched my heart like duane.....don't know why either.....but he's in there and it's permanent....

Yes, but Duane's slide style in "Live at Fillmore East" influenced a lot of players, including Rory Gallagher and Johnny Winter himself.
The Allman Brothers Band had a great inpact on Johnny. His group "Johnny Winter and.." reflects this influence, with the duets between him and Rick Derringer.

It's my opinion...


PeachNutt - 4/3/2005 at 03:28 AM

I think what Duane was referring to in the quote about seeing johnny & edgar winter wasn't specifically about the music as much as it was about playing Duane & Gregg own music on stage succesfully as brothers on their own terms..........i strongly doubt he was comparing talent levels....regardless of the comment he made at the FE concert he saw in 1968.....i think after 1971 or 1972 or so johnny became a much more of rock & roll for a number of years.........the fuzztones on slide definitely made me think he picked up a little something from Duane......

Charlesinator - 4/6/2005 at 01:21 PM

First of all Johnny Winter is an American treasure, a peer and equal of Duane, Jimi, Jimmy Page, Clapton, Beck and whoever IMO. Duane's comment about Johnny is not a put down but a compliment in the form of inspiration, a sort of if he can do it,I know I can thing. Johnny has been a inspiration on so many players SRV and Warren Haynes are two that come to mind right off the bat. If anything I believe Duane may have been influenced by Johnny in the form of inspiration before Johnny may have been influenced by Duane. Johnny Winter has put out so many good records (the only bad one I can think of is his last live record.) Any person who loves the blues has to dig Johnny Winter. Alas Johnny's health here recently has taken a turn for the worse. Keep Johnny in you prayers. Johnny Winter is as much the blues as BB, Freddie, Albert, Muddy, Howlin', Elmore and certainly SRV. He is a real nice guy to boot. ROCK ON!!!

A great Johnny's influence can be heard on Eric Sardinas....


finsky - 4/8/2005 at 04:07 PM

Johnny also got his name out there to the public before FE/Layla, & etc. Duane's comments regarding Johnny sound "spot on" to me, when a relatively unknown player is trying to make a name for himself(and Johnny got his name out there before Duane). Santana made similar comments right at Mike Bloomfield, although Carlos later apologized to him for it.

I really don't see/hear Duane "influencing" Johnny at all, & vice versa. You really don't kiss the arses of your contemporaries, & not just in music.

It's funny with this whole slide thing.... lately, many of the publications make it seem like Duane was the ONLY guy doing it back then. Listening to the Yardbirds & Butterfield the past few days, & I can swear that there's some great slide playing on those albums.

I came across this book at a Border's recently...



Pretty interesting read. As with many books similar to this, some of the writing/info is spotty, but they had a few gems included from Delaney's recollection of Motel Shot. As many of us know, Duane contributed some tasty work to this recording, including the "guitar case." He also confirmed that Duane & Gram Parsons were there for "Sing My Way Home", which was pretty cool. Wish we knew more on who was there for what on each song.


PeterNelson - 4/8/2005 at 06:17 PM

I don't hear direct Johnny influence on Duane, but Johnny was pretty hot as a blues rocker in the late '60s, and Duane was completely aware of the scene and Johnny in particular. I agree with you guys who say that Johnny served more as an inspiration rather than as someone to cop licks from.

I got my first Johnny album in the middle '70s, after I'd already been getting into Duane for a couple years, and I played the heck out of it. This was a reissue of Austin, Texas, which Johnny had actually recorded in 1968. I worked in the Sound & Photo Dept. of a Target Store (semi-discount semi-superstore), where we liked to keep the music going. I'd sometimes stick an 8-track of Austin, Texas, into the dept.'s stereo and listen to it for, like, 2 or 3 hours in a row.

Anyway, this album is pretty hardcore blues for a blues rocker. Check out these tracks:
* Muddy Waters: "Rollin' and Tumblin' "
* Muddy: "Tribute to Muddy" (actually, mostly "Catfish Blues" with lots of guitar soloing)
* J. Moore (?): "I Got Love If You Want It" (didn't the Yardbirds do this?)
* Sonny Boy Williamson: "Help Me"
* B.B. King: "It's My Own Fault"
* Howlin' Wolf: "Forty-four"
* Johnny: four tracks

This was recorded in 1968 and assumedly released that year. If so, Johnny was touring in support of Austin, Texas, when Duane took Jimmy Johnson to see Johnny at the Fillmore in January 1969, during the Aretha sessions in New York. As Jimmy recounted in the 1981.10 Guitar Player special issue on Duane:

"He says, 'Hey, let's run over to the Fillmore East to hear this new guy.' Johnny Winter was playing his premiere performance in New York, and the publicity was unreal."

Duane was aware and he was competitive. He would have known all about Johnny in a short time.

By the way, the bass player on Austin, Texas, is Tommy Shannon, so here's a direct Stevie Ray connection, although I don't know that Stevie directly copped Johnny's licks at all, either. (The drummer is Red Turner.)

I never said being "the first" meant anything here. Thought this was about Duane's comments after seeing Johnny play? I did make a Santana/Bloomfield analogy in regards to that....

I won't disagree about the rewriting the "sound of the electric guitar" bit w/Jimi, but many people say the same thing about Clapton.

Anyway, I'm not keeping score here, on who did what & when, b/c it really isn't that important to me. I just don't see why "citing influences" is such a big deal here. If Johnny wants to say Duane influenced him on the slide, he'll tell it like it is when asked. Until then, it's all speculation.

*No, of course. Duane wasn't the only guy. But he rewrote the slide sound, I swear!*

Rusty - 5/6/2005 at 12:37 PM

I read an interview with Rick Derringer years ago in Creem Magazine (I think). In the article, Rick says that "Duane Allman once told me that I was one of the one's who gave him the idea of playing slide".

To me, Rick Derringer is one of least talked about, and most over looked players. He was also in the "Winter camp" (played with Johnny and Edgar together and apart). He's a pretty good slide player, too (listen to Steely Dan's "Show-biz Kids").

Any thoughts or comments on Rick Derringer's possible influence on Duane?


Billastro - 5/6/2005 at 03:51 PM

In the May/June, 1973 issue of Guitar Player, there was a Duane Allman tribute article by Richard Albero. It said that after Duane listened to the Folkways LP "Country Blues" he got the idea for "Statesboro Blues". The LP had Blind Willie McTell's original version, so this is Roots.

Later the piece quotes him as saying, "I heard Ry Cooder playing some time ago and I said 'That's for me.'" He goes on to say how everyone was apprehensive at first ("'Oh, no! He's getting ready to do it again!' Everybody just lowered their heads--start it off fast and get it over with.")

Meanwhile, according to http://www.angelfire.com/tn/LSkynyrd/allman1.html , "One good thing that did happen during the band's stay in Los Angeles was that Duane started to play slide guitar. There are several conflicting, though not necessarily contradictory, accounts of how it happened, but they all concur on one fact: that it was Georgia guitarist Blind Willie McTell's 'Statesboro Blues' that Duane first learned to play slide on.

"'I know exactly how Duane got into bottleneck,' said bassist Pete Carr, who roomed with Duane while he was in Hour Glass. 'We were in L.A. and saw Taj Mahal playing in a club. Jesse Ed Davis was with him, and they did "Statesboro Blues." Jesse played slide guitar and really turned Duane on.'"

Any other thoughts?

That sounds plausible. Derringer did say " one of the ones ..." though.


PeachNutt - 5/6/2005 at 11:02 PM

Derringer is great great player....check out the "McCoys" and a song called "Human Ball"..
very early and very excellent wah-wah work by Rick.....he can play in just about any style-
altho I never cared for the ass-shaking stuff....I was at the March 1971 FE run and saw them....i was a lucky guy.....
