Johnny Winter Documentary In Production

Filmmaker Greg Olliver will be shadowing Johnny Winter throughout 2012 while producing a documentary on the blues guitarist. Johnny revived the careers of Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker by producing their Grammy-winning comeback albums. His friend John Lennon wrote “Rock and Roll People” in his honor, and he has performed at Woodstock and in bands with Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin.

The Johnny Winter documentary will be filmed throughout 2012 with a completion goal and theatrical release planned for 2013.
