Both Joe Perry and Eric Clapton have signed on to appear on the forthcoming release from Johnny Winter. The album comes as part of Winter's Roots series, which also features appearances by Dr. John, Billy Gibbons and Ben Harper.
Clapton and Perry will feature on the second edition of the series, Roots 2, which is slated to hit stores in June or July.
There are two additional editions of the series set for release in the future. Speaking with Gibson.com, Winter explained that the series is a nod to his childhood:
"I like playing songs from when I was first getting into music. That's just fun to do those songs, lots of good memories. It's [great] to bring it to the people of today who haven't listened to the old music. It's better than anything they hear today."
