    Setlist:

  5. Jumpin' jack flash
  6. It's my life

  9. Boot hill [after one minute into the song, the sound stops abruptly, Johnny says good night and walk off the stage, for no apparent reason.

Johnny Winter als Headliner, die Dave Kelly Band als den OpeningAct bestreitende Gäste. So war es angekündigt und folgerichtig waren die Erwartungen der Besucher, die sich bei mäßigem Wetter um die Freilichtbühne im Hamburger Stadtpark versammelt hatten, dementsprechend.

Dass Johnny Winter nicht einer der einfachsten ist, wusste schon die Dame vom Konzertbüro Karste Jahnke. Interviews wurden keine gewährt. Was besonders schade ist, da etliche Fragen, die Zukunft Winters betreffend, noch ungeklärt sind . Man muß sich also in Geduld üben. Wer erwartet und gehofft hat, dass der Mann mit dem schlohweißen Haar von einer schwarzen Combo auf seiner Tournee unterstützt wird oder gar von den Musikern, die ihn auf Guitar Slinger wo großartig begleiteten, wird enttäuscht gewesen sein. Den Baß zupfte wie in den vergangenen Jahren Jon Paris, der auch etwas Harmonika spielte und den Drang verspürte, sich in Szene zu setzen; und am Schlagzeug saß Tom Campton, seit Jahren Drummer für Alvin Lee und mit diesem erst kürzlich in hiesigen Hallen zu bewundern gewesen, Damit setzte sich die Tradition der harten, aber in ihrem Bereich immer abwechslungsreichen Trommler in den Winter-Bands fort, die von Johnny Turner über Randy Zehringer bis hin zu Richard Hughes und Bobby Torello und in gewisser Weise auch Willie Smith und zuletzt Casey Jones reicht.

Zum Konzert lässt sich wenig sagen. Äußerlich mit Gitarre, Hut und den Brust und Arme bedeckenden Tätowierungen, erscheint Johnny Winter genau so, wie er sich auf dem Cover von "Guitar Slinger"darstellt. Die Eröffnungsnummer hieß, wie gehabt, "Hideway". Es folgen fünf Titel aus dem besagten Album, die Klassiker "Johnny B.Goode" und "Jampin'Jack Flash" und das wäre es dann gewesen! Druckvoll, (noch) energischer als auf Platte, mit einem geraden, kräftigen Beat, einem vollen Bass und den grandiosen, dissoluten, über mehrere Chorussen sich erstreckenden Maratonstücken, in denen er, keinen Widerspruch zulassend, deutlich machte, dass er von keinem anderen Bluesgitarristen von der Bühne gespielt werden kann. Optisches Interesse erweckten keine großen Showeinlagen und schon gar keine Lichteffekte, als vielmehr seine bloße Präsenz. Ausstrahlung und Persönlichkeit bot der inzwischen 40jährige Texaner in größerem Maß als die meisten seiner Musikkollegen.

Einen faden Beigeschmack wird wohl jeder der (nüchternen) Besucher dennoch mit auf den Heimweg genommen haben. Nach nur einer einzigen Stunde Spielzeit verabschiedete sich der Meister von der johlenden Menge, ein paar "Fans" verschafften sich unerlaubten Zutritt zur Bühne, andere wurden gewaltsam daran gehindert, Dosen flogen in Richtung Musiker, Johnny Winter brach seine Zugabe ab und verschwand! Kleine Schlägereien zwischen Ordnungskräften und dem Publikum und Polizeieinsatz als krönender Abschluss. Wem soll man die Verantwortung für diese Ereignisse zuschreiben? Dem Veranstalter, der in naiver Fahrlässigkeit Bier in Dosen feilbieten ließ? Den schon teilweise angetrunkenen Zuschauern, die sich nicht entblöden konnten und in ihrer Aggressivität die Trinkbehälter in Wurfgeschosse umfunktionierten? Den Bühnenordnern, die alles andere als geschickt, nämlich gewalttätig reagierten? Oder Johnny Winter, der für 20 Mark einfach mehr zeigen muß als eine peinlich kurze Stunde Musik und somit weniger als seine Vorgruppe? Eine Mitschuld trägt gewiss jeder. Ein erster Schritt in die richtige Richtung wäre der Ausschank von Getränken in Kunststoffbechern, was dem Hamburger Verbot, Dosen mit aufs Gelände zu bringen, ja auch eher entgegengekommen wäre. Überlegen sollte man sich auch ein generelles Alkoholverbot, denn auf diejenigen, die solches von Konzerten fernhielte, können wir, glaube ich, gern verzichten.. Timo Hoyer

Kerrang! no 73 July 26-Aug.8, 1984

Johnny Winter Karrang Magazine 1984
Johnny Winter Kerrang Magazine 1984

JOHNNY WINTER Dingwalls, London THE LURE of the intimate club atmosphere never fades entirely, even for those bands who are familiar with the biggest venues in the world. The Stones played the 100 Club in Oxford Street in 1982, and more recently ZZ Top, Genesis and the Police have all appeared at the Marquee, though the Police's gig there was such a well-kept secretthat the road crew had to go into Wardour Street and round up passers-by to make up the numbers in the audience! This wasn't a problem that Johnny Winter suffered at Dingwalls, where surely new records were set for extremes of audience discomfort. For Dingwalls, unlike the Marquee, is a venue particularly ill-suited to staging bands. A Jong narrow room with a low ceiling divided into three distinct sections and obstructed by a line of pillars, it's actually possible to be at the back and not even realise that the band has started playing. Consequently, the crush at the front to see Johnny Winter would have given a sardine claustrophobia. There were people standing on tables, on partners, swinging from the pipes around the ceiling, and even a fair-sized contingent lounging in the toilets, conveniently located immediately at the side of one PA stack. lt wasn't the night to find yourself busting for a piss. Winter, of course, knows all aboutthe clubs. Before gigs were ever staged at Hammersmith Odeon, the Fillmores and Madison Square Garden, before rock'n'roll became a great mass-media entertainment, there were the clubs and there was the blues. Winter spent much of the Fifties and Sixties hacking his way round the Texas bars and beer-joints and it is surely a testament to both the man and the music that he is still around in 1984, playing the blues to the obvious delight of this packed house.

With longstanding cohort Jon Paris on bass and newcomer Mark Potowsky on drums, the skeletal albino, stripped to the waist to reveal the enormous demon tattoo on his chest, started with a leisurely instrumental - the kind of jam that crams every blues lick in the book into one tidy package and delivers it gift-wrapped as new. Much of the set was drawn from the recent 'Guitar Slinger' album, Winter's raucous vocals and endlessly-fluid guitar working their distinctive magic on such numbers as 'It's My Life Baby', 'Don't Take Advantage Of Me' and 'Mad Dog'. During one slow number about New York, Winter's unique combination of technique, emotion and crude power produced a near perfect reading of the blues guitar, that moment when a piece of wood, metal and electrics can make time stand still. The big crowd-pleasers, though, were the old favourites, an uptempo 'Jumpin' Jack Flash' and the perennial 'Johnny B Goode', both on his excellent 'Johnny Winter And Live' album of 1971. For an encore he chose the slow countryish 'Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye', the sad, gentle side to his otherwise aggressive guitar slinger Image. I didn't catch Winter the following night at Hammersmith Odeon - a more typical gig for him - but seeing him at Dingwalls was strangely reassuring. No matter what the ebb and flow of his commercial status, Winter will always be able to pick up his guitar and go out and work. But not in the manner of a faded star, forced into scraping round the clubs; more after the fashion of a wanderer returning from fantastic voyages to the heart of the rock'n'roll
