Edgar Winter's New Album "Rebel Road" with Guest Stars Johnny Winter, Slash and Clint Black plus Summer Tour 2008

Edgar Winter, author of 'Free Ride" and "Frankenstein" is one of the mainstays of 70's classic rock, as prolific and talented as his brother Johnny.

Well he has a new release planned called Rebel Road, with guest stars brother Johnny Winter, Slash, Clint Black on vocals and harmonica) and Curt Cuomo (percussion, vocals, organ).As yet there is no set release date, but ot sounds like the work has all been done

“The idea was to make a classic American rock album similar to the kind I used to back in the 70s, I believe music is about following your heart as opposed to trends and second guessing What you think the public wants to hear. I wanted to put out an album that felt real to me, regardless of what’s going on in today’s music world. I think artists who play music that comes from the heart and that they believe in will communicate with people. What’s missing in music today is not only real rock and roll, but the Southern style rock that Johnny and I grew up playing in Texas. Country music has come in to fill the vacuum of honesty and sincerity, and I wanted to contribute to this kind of musical integrity in my own way."

“The kind of music I’m playing on Rebel Road has meant so much to me over the years and it was great working with so many talented musicians on bringing it to life. I think it will resonate with fans familiar with my early music and younger lovers of classic rock. There’s something magical about the time this sound came from, when there was more musical freedom and songs reflected such powerful social changes as civil rights and the peace movement during the Vietnam era. There’s a deep sense of humanity in classic rock that still resonates today.”

This summer Edgar is touring with Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band (“the thrill of a lifetime and a dream come true.”) and a triple bill at the House of Blues, Dallas, with Johnny and the brilliant Kenny wayne Shepard
