This post should have been made yesterday but I got side-tracked with life…..I apologize.
On 10 December 1967—the day the music died.
One of my favorite musicians died in that plane crash…..Otis Redding.
His song “Dock Of The Bay” was a standard for us in Vietnam…..and to this day I get goose bumps when I hear him sing…..especially that song.
The song is a classic and should NEVER be re-recorded. PERIOD!
On December 10, 1967, a plane carrying Otis Redding and other members of his band, The Bar-Kays, plunged into Lake Monona.
They were on their way to a show, when their twin-engine aircraft crashed in the lake, miles from the airport. Redding, 26, a soul singer and songwriter, along with six others, died in the crash.

In his memory I would like to present his song that I still cannot get enough of…..and the memories flood back into my psyche.
May he Rest In Peace….we miss you.
Be Well….Be Safe….
