Ringo Starr of The Beatles, Billy F. Gibbons of ZZ Top, and Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters are just some of the big names that will be contributing to "Brother Johnny." This album is a 17-track record that celebrates the career of legendary blues musician Johnny Winter. Winter passed away back in 2014 at the age of 70.
Other artists featured on "Brother Jonny" are The Doobie Brothers’ John McFee and Michael McDonald, Toto’s Steve Lukather and Bon Jovi’s Phil X alongside Doyle Bramhall II, David Grissom, Warren Haynes, Keb Mo, Doug Rappoport, Bobby Rush, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Derek Trucks, Waddy Wachtel and Gregg Bissonette. The album will be released on April 15, 2022.
"Brother Johnny" has been curated by his brother, Edgar Winter. To accompany the announcement of the album, Edgar released a cover of "Johnny B. Goode" sung by Joe Walsh of The Eagles. Edgar explained, “To this day, when I think of rock ‘n’ roll, I think of Chuck Berry and “Johnny B. Goode”. It’s not only Johnny’s story, but also every kid’s story who ever picked up a guitar, coming from humble beginnings with the idea of making it big someday. So of course, it has to be on this album."
