  2. I won a previous prize (Judas Priest), but wasn’t aware of it – I sent you guys my address on FB – could you please look into this?? Thanks.

  3. I think if Otis had lived into the late 60s, he would have been a mega-star! I can envision that he would have been THE breakout artist at Woodstock, even bigger than Sly Stone! He would have been the true “King” of Soul. And, of course, Aretha will never relinquish her title as “Queen.” God bless them both. Our lives are richer because of them.

    • I think Otis’s legacy has grown exponentially over the years, so even though he died very young, he put so much great material down and made such a formidable impact in that short span that, I think to informed music fans, he’s one of the most important and essential soul artists of all time. He certainly is to me! In fact, when I think of the term “soul,” his is usually the first face I see in my mind. I don’t care how many times I hear a song of his–and, believe you me, I listen to him frequently–his singing ALWAYS send a chill bolting up and down my spine. I can’t think of any other artist, in any genre, I can really say that about. God bless him indeed!!!!!
