Johnny Winter documentary bonus scene released

A still from the video

A bonus scene from the Johnny Winter documentary Down & Dirty is being exclusively premiered with TeamRock.

The clip shows the late bluesman and his band sound checking before a gig in France. Down & Dirty was released earlier this year (opens in new tab) by Greg Olliver, known for his work on the acclaimed Lemmy documentary.

Also in the clip, Winter discusses why he was still playing live into his late 60s. He says: “As long as I’m healthy enough to play good, I’ll keep doing it. I’d like to do it another 20 years if I could.”

A previous outtake saw Winter talking about his Gibson Firebird guitar.

Winter died on tour in 2014, at the age of 70.
