Tommy Shannon (aka Tommy “The Slut” Shannon) in an interview: I was living in Dallas, Texas, playing in a soul band there, making good money and one night Johnny Winter came in and sat in. We just jammed and he asked me if I wanted to join his band and I said, “Yes.” I moved down to Houston and we starved our butts off for awhile. I went through the whole Johnny Winter experience
