One of the most important figures in L.A. music has passed; Johnny Otis, dead at 90.
If you ever wanted to understand just what made him so remarkable, here’s as good a place to start.
Once I come up for air from all this work, I’ll try to say more.
(In better news, just recorded Sidebar #21 w/ Syl Johnson. At least some of our legends are still with us).
RIP! Great photo 🙂

I loved Johnny Otis’ spirit and the MFer was 90, good night. What a lively fellow.
Speaking of lively chaps, I can’t wait for your Syl Johnson interview.
