Remembering Jimmy Johnson from the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section

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.
