Managed to catch Johnny Winter on the first night of his two dates at the Globe back at the end of May.
Our first visit to the venue and it was great,staff friendly and helpful, love the Morrocan feel to the place plus the psychedelic posters that adorn the walls as you climb the stairs,nice touch.
Upstairs is very hot(obviously heat rises!) but has a superb view of the stage with great sound,did get a bit full but then Johnny isn't in town every night!
Below in the main area again its very full and still hot but what a great atmosphere. The stage is a great focal point for the venue,up close and personal as they say.
Managed to get in front of Johnny and took some lovely pictures of him.He may seem frail and on the weak side but there's nothing wrong with his fingers,the man can sure play. No one left disappointed tonight.
Icing on the cake was that we got to meet the man himself in his trailer after the gig,exchanged a few words and yes he did sign my now treasured Johnny Winter album!
We will be back.I think its Walter Trout in October.
