Rest in Peace dear guitar master. One of my all time faves.
Back in ’78, Don DeVito at Columbia Records suggested that I work with Barry Beckett, the keyboardist at Muscle Shoals Sound, and make a record down that way. I had the honor of working with Barry and the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section, including the AMAZING and wonderful guitar player JIMMY JOHNSON. Jimmy has recently passed away. Here’s to a great American player. Thank you Jimmy Johnson. Here’s one of the songs we recorded with him on that burning telecaster guitar.
