Both Edgar Winter and his brother, renowned guitarist Johnny Winter were born with albinism, a condition that effects one person in 17,000 in the U.S. www.albinism.org

“Oculocutaneous albinism (OCA) is a rare, genetically inherited condition passed on by both parents to their offspring, resulting in a significant reduction in or absence of pigmentation in the hair, skin, and eyes at birth. Individuals with albinism are very fair-skinned and fair-haired, with (most often) blue eyes that can take on tones of purple or red in bright lighting. This striking appearance has fascinated humankind for centuries, drawing reactions ranging from veneration to alienation.”

From the web site Albinism in Popular Culture.
Edgar Winter
Edgar Winter and his older (by three years) brother Johnny were a vital part of the cadre of ’70smusicians responsible for preserving the blues legacy of rock music. Having grown up in a home filled with music (the boys’ father was a jazz saxophonist as well as a singer in the church choir and a barbershop quartet) by the time they were teens they were already playing together in local bars. Eventually they signed on with local Beaumont, Texas outfits like Johnny and the Jammers and the Black Plague.

Eventually Johnny landed a record deal, and it was Edgar’s performance on Second Winter that enabled him to secure a contract of his own with Epic Record in 1970. Throughout the ensuing decade, Edgar formed and performed with several different ensembles and enjoyed much acclaim for live work as well as modest chart success. Edgar’s greatest claim to fame remains his 1973 hit, “Frankenstein” which made it to number one in the U.S. charts in May of that year. It’s rare enough for rock instrumentals to achieve chart success, but even decades later “Frankenstein” remains a staple of rock radio programming, and both Edgar and Johnny Winter are still revered blues men.
