Johnny winter: Down & Dirty

 
 
 

Reviews

Director Greg Olliver follows Winter and his crew from the swamps of Florida to the concert halls of Hong Kong in a quest to document his origins, where he is now, and the most important steps in between. - premiere Guitar

Alternating with this history is some present-day performance footage and the account of how a skin-and-bones, nearly catatonic Winter — who says "the '90s was a bad decade for me" — was rescued by a change in management. While the story never strays far from the rock-doc rise-and-fall template, Olliver's fannish affection for his still-spirited subject will keep most viewers engaged. - hollywood reporter
