quote:

Jimmy Johnson, the guitarist for the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section (a.k.a. “the Swampers”) whose foundational R&B-based playing could be heard on hundreds of records, including iconic hits by Aretha Franklin, Paul Simon, Wilson Pickett and Lynyrd Skynyrd, died at the age of 76. His death was confirmed by his son Jay Johnson, who did not reveal a cause of death. “He is gone,” his son wrote on Facebook. “Playing music with the angels now.”

Definitely a great one. Hood and Hawkins get a lot of attention out of the Swampers (for good reason), but JJ was great as well.

Damn, what a great picker, and nice guy, from what I have heard. Heard him sitting in with a few bands around, before I ever realized who he was, and that he was a pretty big deal. Found out later,but I never actually got to meet him.
There was a company called Bluesouth Guitars,that made a Jimmy Johnson Signature Telecaster that was bad ass, but out of my price range, back in the day. I sure would like to find one now.

Hasn't Cohen been dead for years? At the very least, I would have assumed that Rebecca De mornay had caused cardiac arrest by now.
