Edgar was born on 28th December, 1946 in Beaumont. With his brother Johnny, who himself is a musician; he started to learn the basics at a very early age. The drive and direction to learn music came from his parents. His father sang as a member of a church choir and was also a saxophone player in a jazz band. Edgar and his brother teamed up in their teens and started to perform locally to further their musical education as members of groups like the Black Plague, Johnny and the Jammers and the Crystaliers. He started to learn how to play a saxophone during high school days after being inspired by the likes of Hank Crawford and Julian Adderley. He then went on to learn other instruments so by the time he graduated from college his range of skills had expanded to playing the guitar, saxophone, keyboards and bass.
His reputation as a wonderful artist slowly but surely started to generate headlines and that eventually led him to signing a contract with Epic Records in the year 1970. He made his debut with the album Entrance later that year. The song Tobacco Road from the album became a big hit that played a big part in turning the album itself into a successful one. He then teamed up with his brother once again and the duo became a success on the radio shows. They then went on to create an ensemble and called it the White Trash. Back with the band, Edgar released another two very successful albums that took his popularity to a whole new level. The first of those two albums was titled Edgar Winter's White Trash which hit the music stores in 1971. The song Keep Playing That Rock and Roll became its biggest hit. Critics like Allmusic and Amazon gave it four and a half stars out of five while the Rolling Stones called it “A pure Delight”.
Then came out his next epic Roadwork released in the year 1972. It was even bigger hit than its predecessor that went on to earn a gold certification from the RIAA for its efforts. He then reunited with Chuck Ruff, Dan Hartman and Ronnie Montrose to create The Edgar Winter Group. The band released the super-hit album They Only Come out at Night in 1973. The song “Frankenstein” not only became a hit but a rage that went to the number one spot. Another song “Free Ride” also made it to the top 20 by reaching fourteenth spot on the Billboard Hot 100 Charts. The album just like the previous one was certified gold and went a few steps further by earning two times platinum status a few years later. On top of that it also remained on the charts for a staggering run of eighty weeks straight. Success continued to come his way with releases like Shock Treatment, Together and Jasmine Nightdreams.
Edgar's music has been used in various TV and radio campaigns to promote their advertisements. As a multi instruments playing performer he is in a league of his own. It takes a lot of skills and efforts to remain at the top for a short time but to remain at the pinnacle for as long as he has really takes some doing. He has generated a staple style that has his hallmarks which is probably the biggest tribute he can get. So fans if music is what gets you going then check the schedule and catch him live by simply buying Edgar tickets.
