On Saturday September 29th 2018 Blues Legend Otis Rush passed away.
Otis was one of my favorite musicians. He was a monster guitar player back in the day and everyone looked up to him. He had a style of his own. We use to shoot pool together, hang out in the clubs together, even toured together in Japan a couple of times. He was a great guy as far as I know and will be missed.
Most of the older musicians are all deceased that knew Otis, the younger musicians don’t know him, but his memory will live on with me.
Thanks for the memories, Otis.
With Deepest Respect! -Jimmy Johnson
