Shocking news about Johnny, but he had a pretty good innings considering his historic health and addiction issues.
He was brilliant live and, apart from his own catalogue, all blues fans revere him for resurrecting the career of Muddy Waters. I remember buying the I'm Ready album and being knocked out by it.
He also provided production, guitar and backing vocals on my favourite of Muddy's recorded versions of Mannish Boy, which is P7 on my jukebox. I'm just playing it now in remembrance.
