Legendary Chicago blues guitarist Otis Rush dies at 84
CHICAGO—Legendary Chicago blues guitarist Otis Rush died on Saturday at the age of 84.
Rush succumbed to complication from a stroke he suffered in 2003.
Rush was born in Philadelphia, Mississipi. He settled in Chicago and began playing the local clubs, wearing a cowboy hat and sometimes strumming his guitar upside down for effect.
He catapulted to international fame in 1956 with his first recording on Cobra Records of “I Can’t Quite You Baby,” which reached No.6 on the Billboard R&B chart.
He was a key architect of the Chicago “West Side Sound” in the 1950s and 1960s, which modernized traditional blues to introduce more of a jazzy, amplified sound.Follow @gorkhapost
