Blog #159-Edgar Winter 1973

April 6, 2015

Spring is finally here and I hope you all had a nice Easter with family and friends.

This week's blog, takes us back to March 28, 1973, for The Edgar Winter Group show at the Riverside Theater here in Milwaukee.

Edgar Winter, was enjoying great success at this time with his #1 hit song "Frankenstein". His other hit at the time "Free Ride", made it to #14 on the US Hot 100 chart.

At the end of 1972, he had formed The Edgar Winter Group with the late Ronnie Montrose, Chuck Ruff and Dan Hartman. This is the band shown here and they were really good!

Edgar, is the brother of the late, Johnny Winter, and is also known as the inventor of the keyboard body strap. This gave him great freedom to move around on stage and continue to play. I also have photographed musician Gary Wright, using this invention.

Take a look back to 1973 and enjoy the platform shoes and big bellbottom pants! Still have those in your closet?

Have a great week.
