Just found out that Jesse James Johnson, Washington DC area blues and soul
performer passed away. He was part of Bo Diddley's band when Bo was based in
DC and in the past few decades led Jesse James & the Raiders who were a
marvelous band. He could really nail Otis Redding as well as do some strong
straight blues. He played at the First DC Bues Festival and some other shows
in our early years but was somewhat less visible.
