Great words and memories from legendary bassist, David Hood on the passing of a fellow "Swamper". I love the Skynnyrd story!

I once had a very nice conversation with a stranger who turned out to be Jimmy Johnson. This was about 10 years ago, so he did not look like a rock star or even a guitar player. This comes a week after losing fellow Muscle Shoalsman, Donnie Fritts. God rest 'em both.

Their music meant a lot to me, my whole life. That groove and that feel stirred my soul, and still does. Those boys could lay it down!. Thank god for the swampers.

To me, Jimmy Johnsons rhythm playing on (Hey Jude) is just as important as Duane Allmans lead playing on that track.

Some of the stuff on the DA anthologies are indeed w/3 guitars (re Skynyrd comment), including the Otis Rush song You Reap What You Sow - a session that was produced by Mike Bloomfield & Nick Gravenites

Good post indeed on Hey Jude, & after listening to Wilsonís take of Born To Be Wild - X2 there as well
