The Blues world has lost another legend this morning. Jody Williams was born in 1935. In addition to being a childhood friend of Bo Diddley, he played played regularly in the bands of Howlin' Wolf and Billy Boy Arnold. He also accompanied Willie Dixon, Jimmy Witherspoon, Otis Rush, and Jimmy Rogers among others. His playing can be heard on classics such as ‘Who Do You Love’ by Bo Diddley, ‘I Wish You Would’ by Billy Boy Arnold, and ‘Evil’ and ‘Forty Four’ by Howlin’ Wolf. For those fortunate enough to have seen his autograph, it was as elegant and flowing as the music produced by Mr. Williams. May he rest in peace.
