R.I.P. Johnny Otis



Cantaretul de muzica R & B, tobosarul, compozitorul si DJ-ul american Johnny Otis a murit, joi, la varsta de 90 de ani.



Interpretul, cunoscut ca unul din pionerii genului R & B, a decedat in Los Angeles, unde a trait marea parte a vietii sale, a declarat specialistul in istoria muzicii, Tom Reed, citat de LA Times.




Parintii lui au fost imigranti din Grecia, iar el a crescut intr-un cartier care era predominant populat de negrii, in anii 1920. Inca de tanar, a declarat ca ar fi vrut sa fie afro-american.



Aceasta convingere i-a marcat cariera muzicala, creandu-si o legatura puternica cu cultura populatiei de culoare din SUA. El a descoperit interpreti precum Etta James, Little Richard, Jackie Wilson, Hank Ballard si Little Esther Phillips.

Primul sau hit   rhythm and blues  a fost lansat in 1958 si s-a numit "Willie and the Hand Jive". printre alte piese cunoscute se numara si "So Fine," "Double Crossing Blues" sau "All Nite Long".

El a fost fratele mai mare al lui Nicholas A. Veliotes , fost ambasador al SUA in Jordan (1978-1981) şi in Egipt (1984-1986).
