Johnny Winter @ Olympia Theatre, Paris 7/8/11

Ahh, a venue with A/C inside.  It may as well have been in NYC.  A very commercial theatre with no seats downstairs and a balcony with seats upstairs.  They sell coca cola products and bottled water with no cap.

It was a double bill with Warren.  The trio played one before bringing out Johnny.  Bass, drums and guitar that made me very happy to be there.  Johnny's pretty old now, but he sounded good and his band is great.  They did lots of familiar songs.  The music reminded me of Allman Brothers blues songs.

Warren came out and joined for the 1st encore song.  The set was 1.5 hours.

Toward the end of the WHB set, Warren told us his 3 guitar idols growing up were Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and Johnny Winter.
