Ran into Otis Redding's grandson this weekend in Macon,Georgia. Otis's widow has been very slow to get things like books,movies going. It's been almost 40 years,I would say slow is an understatement. With that said,things may now be moving forward. The Georgia Music Hall of Fame still has an exhibit of a few of Otis's posters,etc. It's cool to look back and a great story he has too. It's a big black/white culture mesh. Management and fans did not obey color lines. He still had to endure the discrimination. The music,the fame,a lot of story and it can't come soon enough...Dock of the Bay just touches his catalogue. The Sad Song,Can't turn you loose, too many to name.. It will be a rocking film...Hurry up!
