Joe Perry, Eric Clapton Guest on Forthcoming Johnny Winter Album

Johnny Winter
The second installment in Johnny Winter’s Roots album series includes contributions from several of Winter’s high-profile six-string peers. Eric Clapton, Joe Perry, Billy Gibbons and Ben Harper all make guest appearances, along with keyboard legend Dr. John.

Titled Roots 2, the just-completed album is tentatively slated for release in June or July, with two additional installments—Roots 3 and Roots 4—planned for future release.

Speaking to Billboard, Winter said, “I like playing songs from when I was first getting into music. That’s just fun to do those songs, lots of good memories. It’s [great] to bring it to the people of today who haven’t listened to the old music. It’s better than anything they hear today.” In related news, the 70-year-old blues veteran was profiled in a film documentary—titled Johnny Winter: Down and Dirty—that premiered last week at the South By Southwest Festival in Texas.
