When guitar player Doug Brockie was 15. At 16, he formed a Johnny Winter cover band called Cobalt. Doug was playing in Cobalt when Johnny spotted drummer Richard Hughes, who he hired in 1972. The following year, Doug was thrilled to be one of the eight guitarists auditioning for the slot of Johnny's second guitarist. He played "I Love Everybody" from Second Winter and immediately got the job. Doug moved into the band's communal house in fall 1973 and played with Johnny through the end of the Saints and Sinners tour in June 1974. Doug was dividing his time between the East and West Coast when I interviewed him. He shared his insights on how Johnny felt about any guitar player who tried to upstage him, and how his wild guitar playing on stage got him fired time and time again. He talks about the funky private plane that almost ended their lives, and a wild array of shows from the Saints and Sinners tour, including the ones recorded for the King Biscuit Flower Hour. He also shares Johnny's irreverent greeting whenever he saw the then 19-year-old guitarist who became and remains a good friend.
