9780879309732: Raisin' Cain: The Wild and Raucous Story of Johnny Winter (Book)

(Book). Author Mary Lou Sullivan sat with Johnny Winter for hours of exclusive, no-holds-barred interviews, covering the guitar slinger's entire career. From toughing it out in Texas to his appearance at Woodstock, his affair with Janis Joplin, his stadium-filling tours, and washing out on drugs and the temptations of the road before finally fulfilling his dream of becoming a 100-percent pure bluesman, resurrecting the career of Muddy Waters, and winning a Grammy Award for his effort, this is a raucous roller coaster of story. Rolling Stone magazine has called Johnny Winter one of the greatest guitar players of all time. Ripped off and beaten down by unscrupulous managers, strung out, living the extreme highs and extreme lows of an uncompromising musician, Johnny is a true rock 'n' roll survivor. Signing with Columbia in 1969 for the largest advance ever paid a musician (which led to his appearance at Woodstock, recently reissued in the deluxe Woodstock Experience box set) he has jammed with guitar heavies Hendrix, Clapton, and the Allman Brothers. He is a legend and an icon, paving the way for fellow Texas superstars Stevie Ray Vaughan and ZZ Top. Along the way he has gone from boom to bust and back again, but has never lost his lust for his own brand of blues. Still on the road, playing hundreds of gigs a year to his devoted, adoring fans, Johnny, like this book, is the real deal.

About the Author:

Mary Lou Sullivan is a music journalist whose 30-year career began at a dinner with Bruce Springsteen. She first interviewed Johnny Winter in 1984, a meeting that led to a close rapport that has only deepened through the years. When she's not soaking up music in Austin, Memphis, or the Mississippi Delta, she lives in the Connecticut countryside with her cat, Pitters, and a mojo bag from New Orleans.

From Booklist:

Sullivan gives Johnny Winter, the Texas blues guitar link between Lightnin' Hopkins and Stevie Ray Vaughan, an ebullient biography, tracing his passage from blues purist to rock star and back. Hailed early for his fast and tasty guitar, Winter moved into the 1960s hard-rock mainstream by teaming with the remnants of the McCoys (remember “Hang on Sloopy”?) and recording a live “Johnny B. Goode” that rivals Peter Tosh's reggae take as a great recasting of the Chuck Berry classic. After years of nearly Keith Richards–level drug-laced touring success, Winter returned to his blues roots in several acclaimed albums and engineered Muddy Waters' mid-'70s resurgence by producing and playing on several of the seminal Chicago bluesman's later albums. Sullivan may go over the top in enthusiasm, but many of the tidbits she relays, such as the story of Winter, Muddy, and James Cotton jockeying for position on the Mike Douglas show, not to mention the skinny on the semi-forgotten Steady Rollin' Bob Margolin and Big Walter Horton, compensate pricelessly. What more could blues fans ask? --Mike Tribby
