Busted, Disgusted or Dead

Album: Still Climbing (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • This song features Leslie West and Johnny Winter on dueling slide guitars. West told Ultimate Classic Rock about the collaboration: "I toured with Johnny last year, and his manager, Paul Nelson, said, 'Johnny's doing an album — would you play a cut on his?' I said of course. Johnny's slide playing on 'Busted, Disgusted or Dead' — you can really hear him. He plays the middle solo after me. They work together. I picked guys that I would love to have play on the album, rather than, Let's see if we can get this guy who I never even met."
