Johnny Otis and Etta James, RIP -- January 20, 2012

We have had two great losses.  Johnny Otis was a Greek American from Vallejo who decided to identify as an African American.  We can thank that decision for a lot of good music.  Etta James made her first records with Johnny Otis.  She had a wonderful voice.

It started raining yesterday.  It continued today.  There were Occupy demonstrations around the Financial District.
