possibilities with experimentation and sound. His music has encompassed many
genres of music, including rock, jazz, blues, and pop. With over 20 albums and
numerous collaborative efforts to his credit, Winter (along with his brother Johnny)

evolving, as he is a master at stretching his skill and imagination to produce

knocked the Beatles out of their number one spot on Billboard that year. His solo
smashes were “Rock And Roll Hootchie Koo,” “Still Alive And Well” and “Teenage
Love Affair”. The McCoys had enjoyed four years of successful touring, when Rick
merged his talents with Johnny Winter in 1969 forming Johnny Winter And (And
