Wikipedia : This day (January 29, 1992), in Burbank, California, died William James ‘Willie’ Dixon,an American blues musician and prolific songwriter.

Official Website : Can you imagine what music would be like without such hits as “Hoochie Coochie Man”, “Little Red Rooster”, “Spoonful”, “I Ain’t Superstitious”, “I Can’t Quit You Baby” or “My Babe”? Neither could most. Thankfully, we don’t have to.

@ allmusic : Willie Dixon‘s life and work was virtually an embodiment of the progress of the blues, from an accidental creation of the descendants of freed slaves to a recognized and vital part of America’s musical heritage.

@last.fm : In 1936 Dixon moved from his native Mississippi to Chicago, won an Illinois Golden Gloves boxing championship, and began selling his songs. He played double bass in several bands before joining Chess Records.

@Discogs : Inducted into The Blues Foundation Hall of Fame in 1980.
