Yes - my favourite , is Otis Rush. He is the Poet of the blues. It's him & no one else who put the lyricism inside this art & inside the guitar
Dig Otis tone, timing & melodies here
How I love Otis Rush! Such a soulful playing and singing! Thanks @rjtwangs ! Twang on!
As influential as more celebrated bluesmen of his era.
Mmmmm, yeah, love some Otis. I always think that Albert King and Otis have very similar sounds and wondering if it is because they both play left handed or similar guitar tunings or just that special Chicago blues of the time.
They both influenced each other, imho.
Thanks. It does seem that way to me too, I was just wondering about the back story on these two.
Beautiful, on a good night there..
Otis Rush is a Blues God.
F**king stroke. Otis is still with us, but not doing well since his stroke in 2004. Just like that, a little switch was tripped and now he is stuck inside a body that doesn't respond well.
I know a singer who worked with him, and she feels that he is in good hands with his wife.
Unlike many other bluesmen, Otis has a good family and a great wife. Yup, the stroke took him away from music, but he had just recorded two masterpieces back to back
This guy never gets his due. Thanks for posting.
Well, lots of idiots in the world.
