Edgar Winter Group – Frankenstein

Posted: May 15th, 2007, by Ollie

This might turn into Ollie Simpson’s Great Moments in Rock and Roll, but oh well. Edgar Winter from The Old Grey Whistle Test in 1973, and he is taking no prisoners. There are so many points where I want to scream “YEEAAH!!” at the screen with clenched fists, but a definite highlight can be found at 6:23 where Edgar attempts to kill his keyboard in the style of a puma.


Ollie lives in Cambridge and puts on gigs as part of Crushing Death and Grief.

    I have been ALL OVER THIS SHIT for the last few weeks! Coincidence or cosmic alligning of diskant minds?

    When Edgar is involved it is COSMIC OR NOTHING.

    First saw this on the Old Grey Whistle Test best of DVD a couple of years ago, and it’s fair to say I’ve never been the same since.
