Paul Nelson has taken Johnny on as labor of Love. If only he could get him to play the set list that Winter preaches that he loves.....
THE blues. And the favorite song "he ever wrote" STRANGER
Going down slow aka It's my own fault If blues covers lets hear
Come on in my kitchen, missipi blues talk to ure daughter.....
I think. He punishes his fans for buying cut outs. Funky music
Prodigal son. MEMORY pain. I love everybody Hate everybody
And throw in still alive & we'll. Goin back to the delta Walkin thru the Park Rock n roll Hoochie Koo. Deep Down in Florida every show
Susan Winter needs to work with Paul and change up the arrangements
You see her disdain when true Johnny fans make real blues requests and
He looks at that watch and. Does highway 61 rather than SWeet papa
It's sad Johnny could give his die hard fans so much more. He perhaps is Tired of tryin.
