40th Year As A Performer!
ST. LOUIS - In April, Walt Winston celebrated starting his 40th year as a
performing artist playing his guitar back in 1981 when he got his start at
his high school performing in the hall ways before classes early in the morning. When asked about the milestone, Winston told the Walteria News
Network: "I've come a long way since my days playing at Mehlville High
where I actually got my start." "It's been a memorable journey from the
halls of my high school, to seedy bars and nightclubs in St. Louis to opening
for Denny Laine, and Mark Chesnutt, then on television for America's Got Talent! A year later I reached the pinnacle of my performing career as the top of the bill in my hometown in front of 3000 fans." "if anyone would have told me back in 1981, that I would have earned over 100 Online Number One Hits, performed three times on television, playing for over 12
million people the third time on television, I would have told them they're
crazy, as I never imagined I would do any of these things."
