I don't recall a video, but here's an interview from Rock Cellar Magazine that compiled interviews with several other bands/musicians, etc. for a 50th anniversary special published last year.Woodtsock 69
Rock Cellar: You played the Woodstock Festival in 1969; did you have sense of the importance of the event itself?
Johnny Winter: Not really, not until we were flying in by helicopter and saw all the people. That’s when we realized it was gonna be something huge.
Rock Cellar: Were you nervous?
Johnny Winter: Nah, I never get nervous.
Rock Cellar: Why not?
Johnny Winter: I just don’t. I like to play; it doesn’t bother me at all. I’ve always enjoyed playing; I never get nervous playing a show no matter how many thousands of people are in the audience.
Rock Cellar: You don’t appear in the Woodstock film, why?
Johnny Winter: My manager didn’t think it was good idea. He said the festival didn’t make any money and the film probably wouldn’t either. He always said it was the biggest mistake he ever made. He admitted it to me.
Rock Cellar: Do you regret you weren’t in the film?
Johnny Winter: Sure I do. Oh yeah … I was very happy with the way we played; it would have been great to have been included in the film. I remember that I was asleep in the press tent using a bag of garbage for a pillow. We just wandered out there to see what was going on and they said, “Well, you guys are all here so why don’t you play?” I’d just woken up and I’m surprised we played so good. (laughs) I didn’t get to see anyone else play at Woodstock; it was hard to get a helicopter out so we left as soon as we got finished playing our set.________________Keep on rolling.......
