Otis Rush, Seminal Chicago Blues Guitarist, Dead at 84

Rush became a staple of the Chicago scene in the late Fifties and early Sixties, partnering first with Cobra Records, which was also home to artists like Magic Sam and Buddy Guy. Their take on the blues would prove to be a revelation for a generation of artists to follow, while Rush would become a totem for countless rock guitarists (he was placed at Number 53 on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists).

Rush exemplified the modernized minor key urban blues style with his slashing, amplified jazz-influenced guitar playing, high-strained passionate vocals and backing by a full horn section," the statement on his website read. "Rush's first recording in 1956 on Cobra Records 'I Can't Quit You Baby' reached No.6 on the Billboard R&B Charts and catapulted him to international acclaim. He went on to record a catalog of music that contains many songs that are now considered blues classics."

Rush's sound and style influenced rock and blues artists from Eric Clapton to Stevie Ray Vaughan to Jimmy Page

Rush's solo style was characterized by a wide vibrato that was a product of his unusual approach-like Albert King and, after him, Jimi Hendrix, Rush was a lefty who played a right-handed guitar flipped over and upside-down, with the low E string on the bottom and the treble strings on top. He explained the effect that had on his sound to Vintage Guitar in a 1998 interview.

While Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf, his predecessors from the city's South Side, popularized an amplified update of the bare-bones sound of the Mississippi Delta, Mr. Rush's modernized variant - which came to be called the West Side sound because of its prevalence in nightclubs in that part of town - was at once more lyrical and more rhythmically complex.

Der Revoluzzer mit den Feuersaiten

Er hat sie alle beeinflusst: Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Duane Allman. Aber mit seiner eigenen Karriere hatte der begnadete Gitarrist Otis Rush meist Pech.
