Happy Birthday to Otis Redding,born September 9, 1941.

Known the world over as “Big O,” Otis Redding remains one of music’s most influential and important voices, resonating through the almost four decades since his untimely passing at the age of 26 in a 1967 tragic plane crash. Coupling his passionate, emotive, raw and supremely soulful vocal style with the ability to write songs (such as “Respect,” “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long” and “(Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay”) that spoke to audiences the world over, Otis Redding was peerless, a creative talent whose recorded output ended way too soon.
