Keep that bubble intact. There's a whole lot of music that wouldn't have
gotten made without Willie Dixon. He was a great producer, studio
musician, and alot of those songs are either his for real, or he did the
adaptation that we all love now. He's the bass player on most of those
classic Chuck Berry records, for goodness sake.
You can hear it in the Big Three Trio stuff, too - he understood what the
audience wanted and how to shape what they got.
You can say this about very few people: without him, no rock and roll.
