They came on stage and both were to Drunk to play. They apologized and left.

Then Jethro Tull played until 2am

Epic Concert in Tampa Florida.

The Line up was:

Johnny and Edgar Winter
Robin Trower
Jethro Tull

all this for $19. USD

I saw him once, in the 80's. A fine musician.

His music brings back some memories for me, from those interesting days. The first time I was introduced to his music was when a guy friend (who was lost in drugs, deceased for some time now, RIP Rick) took me to a heroine party (I didn't partake), but they were all grooving to Johnny Winter. RIP.
