Frankenstein for Halloween

Edgar Winter plays at Thunder Valley Casino this Saturday nite--the nite before Halloween--and thankfully the show will be indoors, cuz the forecast calls for showers. Last time I saw Edgar, the weather was quite the opposite...a scorching hot July afternoon, at the Gold Country Fairgrounds in Auburn. He was the headliner that year (2005) for the Placer SPCA's BBQ & Blues show. As you may know, Edgar is an albino..so he has to take extreme caution in the sun--which meant he was wearing long pants, and a heavy black jacket.  I thought he was gonna melt in the summer heat!...but he survived, and rocked it..and the highlight was a 20 minute jam on "Frankenstein", where Edgar showed his musical virtuosity.  He not only played his signature keyboards (slung around his neck)...but took a stint on percussion, and saxophone as well.  Good stuff...but stay outta the sun, son.
