Edgar Winter Caricature, illustrated here in 1970, age 24.
Edgar Holland Winter is an American musician, songwriter, and record producer. He is known for being a multi-instrumentalist—keyboardist, guitarist, saxophonist and percussionist—as well as a singer.
Winter was born with albinism; a congenital disorder characterized by the complete or partial absence of pigment in the skin, hair and eyes.
By the time Edgar Winter left his hometown of Beaumont, Texas in 1963, he was already a proficient musician.
From his critically acclaimed 1970 debut release, “Entrance”, he has demonstrated his unique style and ability to cross the genre lines and do the unexpected. His early recording of “Tobacco Road” propelled him into the national spotlight. Edgar followed “Entrance” with two hit albums backed by his group White Trash, a group originally composed of musicians from Texas and Louisiana.
White Trash, with Winter and Jerry Lacroix both on lead vocals and sax, enjoyed huge success, with the 1971 release of the studio album Edgar Winter’s White Trash, and with 1972’s follow-up live gold album (partially recorded at New York’s Apollo Theater) Roadwork.
In late 1972, Winter brought together Dan Hartman, Ronnie Montrose and Chuck Ruff to form The Edgar Winter Group, who created such hits as the number one “Frankenstein” and “Free Ride” (with lead vocals by its writer Hartman). Released in November 1972, They Only Come Out at Night peaked at the number 3 position on the Billboard Hot 200 and stayed on the charts for 80 weeks. It was certified gold in April 1973 by the RIAA, and double platinum in November 1986.
Winter invented the keyboard body strap early in his career, an innovation that allows him the freedom to move around on stage during his multi-instrument high-energy performances.
After They Only Come Out at Night, Winter released Shock Treatment, featuring guitarist Rick Derringer in place of Ronnie Montrose. That album contained Winter’s third and final Top 40 single “River’s Risin'”, again sung by Hartman.
Winter and his wife, Monique, live in Beverly Hills, California.
