In 1972, Edgar brought together Dan Hartman, Ronnie Montrose, and Chuck Ruff to form The Edgar Winter Group, the legendary band that created such mega hits as “Frankenstein” and “Free Ride.” With over 20 albums and numerous collaborative efforts to his credit, not to mention his introduction of playing the keyboard around his neck, Edgar Winter has not been satisfied to ride the wave of popular music stardom. His music is always evolving, and he is a master at stretching his skill and imagination to produce amazing results. He continues to thrill audiences with his live performances, always remaining on the cutting edge of music and style.
