"When I first saw Johnny perform, I was, maybe 12 or 13, and he was known as 'Johnny Cool Daddy Winter' and we've always thought of him as exactly that: 'One Cool Daddy.' Johnny became a dear and passionate friend as well as the accomplished bluesman we have come to admire. It's now a moment for celebration of his brilliance frozen for all time. We've lost another of the gifted guitar greats and a truly soulful spirit." — Billy F. Gibbons
