GRAMMY® winner Otis Rush was one of the most influential guitarists of the Chicago blues scene, best known for crafting the city's "West Side Sound." With his passionate vocals, unique performance style, and jazz-influenced guitar playing, Rush set the standard for blues musicians in Chicago and beyond. He earned four GRAMMY nominations throughout his expansive career, and was awarded the Best Traditional Blues Album GRAMMY for Any Place I'm Going at the 41st Annual GRAMMY Awards®. He will forever be remembered for transforming traditional blues into a more intensified sound, and influencing many of the rock and blues greats that followed him. Our thoughts go out to his family, friends, and colleagues during this difficult time.
