Johnny was a huge influence on my guitar playing when I was in high school. You can still hear him in just about everything today's great blues players like Joe Bonamassa do. Met him at Cain's Ballroom in Tulsa in '76. One of the nicest guys around.

Such a shame but he died doing what he loved.... he was on tour, playing his ass off.

The production work he did with Muddy Waters (particularly on the Hard Again album in 76/77) was fantastic and propelled both of them to the top of the heap again.

Johnny was a real gentle and soft spoken guy but a monster on stage. He'll be missed and he's left his influence on a lot of people.
