Rick , your story is amazing . You have walked with angels of the music world . I had thought that after Rocken Roll Hoochy Koo that you quit . I'm glad you didn't. Your influence has been tremendous on our music .

I've always loved Rick's playing. I wish I knew where that old Les Paul he used to play back in the Johnny Winter And days. He played the hell outta that.

I still think the ‘Johnny Winter And’ album has some of the best guitar work done by 2 guitarist ever. Rick and Johnny were magic together on that record.

Great interview, saw Rick play in a nightclub in the early 90's , it was a trio situation and man he made it sound full, IMHO he would give most guitarists a run for their money after seeing him live !

You see, live and learn Rick just answered a lot of questions for me, he is by far one of the most phenomenal guitar players I've ever heard in my life, I never , he's knocked me off my chair a couple times when I've heard him play, , this was when he was younger ,the greatest guitar player ever I believe.

The first Guitar hero, Rick was doing the stuff Van Halen did BEFORE vAN hALEN,,,

This was such a pleasure! When I was learning to play guitar, Rick was my idol. I wore out three records that I listened to constantly - Johnny Winter And, Johnny Winter And Live, and Edgar Winter's White Trash. Rick's guitar playing was amazing! His clarity, tone, bends, phrasing, staccato....everything! And, I've learned, he's such a good, decent God-loving human being to boot. And these stories are awesome! Thank you!!
