    "I heard some people heard I’d died. They’ll find out soon that I didn’t,” says Shuggie Otis. Otis – the son of rhythm and blues pioneer Johnny Otis – is as close to a living legend as you can get. A bass and guitar whiz who recorded his first album with session supremo Al Kooper and appeared on Frank Zappa’s Hot Rats, both in 1969, when he was 15, he was considered the heir apparent to Jimi Hendrix. As a multi-instrumental polymath flitting between genres and experimenting with drum machines, he was the peer of Sly Stone and Stevie Wonder and a precursor to Prince. He was rock’s most wanted, declining offers to join the Rolling Stones, David Bowie and Blood, Sweat & Tears, and an invitation to collaborate with Quincy Jones. https://bit.ly/2Rq5bdr

    He was born Johnny Otis, Jr. in Los Angeles in 1953. " Compared at the wispy age of 15 with Hendrix and the great Kings of blues guitar (B.B., Albert, Freddie), the young phenom went on to make two expansive, genre-defying, deeply curious albums, 1971's FREEDOM FLIGHT and 1974's INSPIRATION INFORMATION. The records, essentially crafted as a one-man band, floored Sly Stone, gave the Brothers Johnson their most enduring hit (Strawberry Letter 23) and predated the stylistic synthesist Prince by half a decade."
