I had the privilege of seeing Otis perform twice when I was a teenager. On one occasion I got to sit next to Muhammed Ali (aka Cassius Clay at the time) and on the other, somebody got shot. So, memorable. As Dylan said when he heard Hendrix' recording of "All Along the Watchtower," Otis' version of "Satisfaction" was better than the Stones.
