RIP Johnny.
Isn't there a well known song that uses the same riff/melody?
I'm thinking a Buddy Holly one? It's doing my head in...anybody know?

They obviously wrote that song based on the backing singers, it was prob illegal for them to even think about getting on the dancefloor in case the seismic activity caused an earthquake in another state. By just moving their hands it kind of localises the damage

His best record was "Hey Shine"He was best mates with Wynonie Harris who was black(Johnny Otis was Greek) and i've read about their adventures in "Rock,Mr Blues" and he was a crazy man.RIP. He used to record as "Snatch and the Poontangs"which was pretty cool
Best
Neil
