Daily Dose of Music History (July 16, 2015).  On this day in 2014, blues guitarist Johnny Winter died at the age of 70, in Zurich, just days after playing at the Lovely Days Festival in Austria. Winter, who was instantly recognizable by his long white hair, worked with some of the greatest bluesmen, producing several albums for his childhood hero Muddy Waters – with whom he won a number of Grammy awards.

Happy Birthday:  Stewart Copeland (drums, the Police) and Tony Jackson (bass/vocals, the Searchers).
