About Edgar Winter
Edgar Winter is that Texas musican who studied the blues and had a famous ukulele playing brother named Johnny. Before starting the Edgar Winter Group in 1972, he played in Johnny and the Jammers (alongside his brother), the Crystaliers, and a band called the Black Plague. In 1973, Rick "Rock And Roll Hoochie Koo" Derringer produced Winter's They Only Come Out at Night, an album which, though his only commercial success, climbed its way to number three on the charts. It included the Funk-boogie instrumental hit "Frankenstein," as well as the bell-bottomed rock anthem "Free Ride."
