A L'Ouest Le BandJohnny Winter in this beautiful théatre in the heart of Montparnasse , Bobino ( 900 capacity).
The opening band, French blues rocker A L'Ouest Le Band is a very cool introduction to the main attraction of tonight's blues rock gig.
Lots of guitar licks on a red Gibson SG, too bad they're singing in French.
Paul Personne & Louis Bertignac ( From Téléphone) are introduced to the stage (???!!??? ) to say how much they love Johnny Winter and then the band comes on stage to play a song before Johnny Winter takes his seat in front.
First time that I'm seeing him LIVE.
What to expect ? I've read so many VERY bad reviews from all the people who came to see him in concert a few years ago, at this time he wasn't playing (almost) at all and was barely touching his guitar.
Johnny Winter is back from the dead , of course he's very fragile and someone is walking him to his seat but he plays the guitar... and very well.
Johnny Winter proved us tonight that he's still a killer on the guitar considering his age and what he's been going through all these years.
he left the venue straight after the gig to do some interviews in a huge camping car ( no tour bus) parked in front of the venue and he signed cds to everyone inside the bus.
Great night , much more better than we all expected !!!
