Johnny Winter, he dead

Saw him live at the old Texas Opry House back in the 'whatevers.  I also saw him at the Montose Krogers New Years Eve around '86.  Ugly dood with lots of tats, buying 40 pounds of dry catfood and 4 cases of canned catfood.  He turned toward me and said "nice tee shirt".  A Lone Star Beer Tee, about 12 years old at the time.  Had Johnny Winter on it.  Looked down, and damn if the image on the shirt wasn't the guy with catfood and tabloids in front of me.  This is my brush with greatness.
