Johnny Winter finds his roots

July 20, 2012

Veteran bluesman Johnny Winter says he never wanted to be a rocker.

In spite of his 1970 best-selling rock album “Johnny Winter … And,” featuring his brother, Edgar, Winter said he always was and always will be true to his first love: the blues.

“I wasn’t really happy crossing over to rock ‘n’ roll,” he said in a telephone interview from Charlotte, N.C., where he was to perform that night.

“That was my manager’s idea. I’d rather not be doing it. At the time, the blues was kind of fading out, and he thought I should do more rock.

Fido & Me —Organic Fido

July 20, 2012

“Forgive me, Fido, but I really never thought about what you were doing back in there. I know it’s a spot you like, but I’ve never really followed you, except to holler at you for digging around in someone’s yard.”

Fido made that “pulled-a-fast-one” grin on his puss.

“Hey hey hey hey! Just look!”

Fido had dug some semi-straight furrows in the dirt. Not really dirt, actually, but Mammoth dirt. That is, some dirt, mostly pumice.

“What is this, Fido?”

“It is my ‘Field of Dreams.’”

The players of the Sierra Classic Theatre will open s six-day run of William Shakespeare’s “The Tempest,” beginning tonight at Sam’s Woodsite in Mammoth.

It is an audacious, if not tempestuous undertaking, directed by Lesley Bruns and performed under the trees at the venue.

The players ask for a $10 donation for those wishing to attend.

Although the theatre company will offer some chairs, the players ask members of the audience to bring their own chairs if they like, and a picnic.
