Joe Perry Joins Johnny Winter on New Song, ‘Mojo Hand’
A day before the release of 'Step Back,' the album Johnny Winter had finished shortly before his death on July 16, another track has been made available for streaming. It's 'Mojo Hand' featuring Aerosmith's Joe Perry.
The mid-tempo blues shuffle, which can be heard above, finds the two guitar greats trading licks on the song, which was recorded by Lightnin' Hopkins in the early '60s. “If it wasn’t for Johnny I’d never have picked up the guitar,” Perry is quoted as saying in the clip.
'Mojo Hand' is the second song to be released from 'Step Back.' Last week, we got a preview of 'Where Can You Be,' which features Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top. In addition to Gibbons, Produced by Paul Nelson, 'Step Back' features cameos from Eric Clapton, Dr. John and others. The track listing, found at Classic Rock Magazine, complete with guest stars, is below.
