Genius Otis Rush, RIP

Post: # 1362961Post Doug »

Otis Rush...so sad, such a loss! Ever since I first heard The Bluesbreakers cover it in 1967, "All your Lovin" has been my favorite Chicago Blues tune. Later I was blown away by the original Cobra recording. Otis' genius created melody, amazing changes, lyrics with a raw, controlled voice, and tone, that had that rare synergy of elegant raucous rockin music.

Bless us all, Otis.

Yeah, I was struck by Marty Balin's passing. So young. Thanks for reminding us, FM.
