In addition to the previously announced Mark Knopfler, Johnny Winter's new album will feature a bunch of other big stars. Roots 2, a collection of classic blues covers, also includes contributions from Eric Clapton, Billy Gibbons, Ben Harper, Joe Perry and Dr. John. It will be out in the summer.
The documentary Johnny Winter: Down and Dirty premiered this week at the South-by-Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas. It features appearances by Billy Gibbons, Derek Trucks and many others.
