Although his recording career was cut short by a plane crash, Otis Redding was one of the most influential soul singers of the 60s and a singer of commanding stature that to this day embodies the essence of soul. His name is synonymous with the word soul, music that rose out of the black experience in America that combined gospel and R&B into a from of funky testifying.

I recently watched Otis Redding's induction by Little Richard on youtube, and it was horribly sad...for all the wrong reasons. I get that Little Richard was Otis' musical hero and inspiration, what an honor to have your hero induct you. But man, LRich dropped the ball.
