Raisin Cain--The Wild And Raucous Story Of Johnny Winter BOOK

Raisin Cain--The Wild And Raucous Story Of Johnny Winter BOOK by Mary Lou Sullivan w/foreword by Johnny Winter

"I love this book..it's exactly what happened. The good stuff was great and the bad stuff was horrible. Some of the memories were painful, but I'm glad they're in here. This book is perfect--there isn't anything left out." Johnny Winter

Johnny Winter is one of the greatest guitar players of all time. This is the story that made him a legend. From toughing it out in Texas to his historic appearance at Woodstock, his affair with Janis Joplin, his late-night jams with Jimi Hendrix, and his stadium-filling, superstar tours at the height of the rock n' roll era to washing out on drugs and temptations of the road before finally fulfilling his dream of becoming a 100-percent pure bluesman, resurrecting the career of Muddy Waters, and becoming a multi-Grammy award winner, this is the most raucous and real rock n' roll story ever told.

Still on the road, playing hundreds of gigs a year for his devoted, adoring fans, Johnny, like this book, is the real deal. Raisin' Cain features dozens of never-before-seen photos--many from Johnny Winter's private collection-from all phases of Winter's career, including shots of him with Eric Clapton, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Muddy Waters, and many more.
