Stevie told me that he played a Firebird early in his career. This one belonged to me. It is a reverse body Firebird III. This particular night he played “Sky is Cryin” with slide. Venue was “Boston Street Market” in Tulsa Ok. 1982
Johnny Winter in Dallas, Texas at “The Palladium”. 1980. Before the tattoos and that little guitar he started playing. Just blues and rock and roll. A real guitar hero. Plays slide in more tunings than you can count and sing. Shown here playing a Gibson Firebird Model V(5) which he made famous throughout his career. Dave Mason played them too, but not like Johnny.
