Edgar Winter is most well-known for his million selling record, “Frankenstein”, released in 1973 and still a favorite on oldies radio stations today! Rolling Stone magazine lists it as one of the top 25 best rock instrumentals of all time! Edgar’s other hits include “Free Ride” and “Tobacco Road”. In the 1970’s Winter started a collaboration with Rick Derringer who would act as his producer and member of his band. Major national television and radio campaigns have used Winter's music to advertise their products. Winter has also made frequent television appearances, both to promote his music, and to give his opinions.
Rick Derringer started his career while still in high school as a member of the The McCoys. Their best known song was "Hang On Sloopy", which was #1 in the United States in October 1965 and is the official rock song of the state of Ohio. Derringer also recorded and played with a version of Johnny Winter's band called "Johnny Winter And ..." and both Edgar Winter's White Trash and The Edgar Winter Group. He played on the band's Grammy nominated instrumental single "Frankenstein", which topped the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart for a week starting in May 1973, and sold over one million copies. His solo hits were “Still alive and Well” and Teenage Love Affair”. In the 1980s, Derringer expanded his producing skills, working with "Weird Al" Yankovic, Cynde Lauper and Steeley Dan.
Big Jim Adam has been a favorite on the Colorado Springs music scene for the past twenty years. He has had two of his songs,”100 Reasons” and “Open Door Policy” recorded by Edgar Winter for the movie Netherworld.
