Etta James 1938-2012 and Johnny Otis 1921-2012

Two musical legends died this week. If you only know Etta James from the sample in Flo Rida’s song, you’re missing out. And Johnny Otis did as much or more for music by who he discovered (that would be Miss James) than by his biggest hit (yeah, that’s a Bo Diddley riff he’s borrowing). They’ll be missed.
