Talking to Otis Rush

uncredited writer, Beat Instrumental, November 1966

OTIS RUSH is one of the top exponents of the Chicago style of blues guitar. His followers are many and include most of Britain's blues-influenced guitarists. Judging by Clapton's behaviour at the Albert Hall performance he must be one of Rush's most ardent followers. His voice could be heard above all others requesting in no uncertain manner that Otis Rush should stay on stage rather than make way for other artists to do their spots.
