R.I.P. Johnny Otis…of Snatch and the Poontangs (among other things)

R.I.P. Johhny Otis, bandleader, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, producer, talent scout, deejay, “Godfather of R&B.” Otis died Tuesday in Los Angeles at age 90.

Here’s a 1969 recording Otis made as Snatch and the Poontangs with his son Shuggie on guitar and Delmar “Mighty Mouth” Evans on vocals. Yep. Snatch and the Poontangs.
