Forgotten Artist Series - Billy Stewart

Millard Fillmore sent this interesting track over and asked that I post it. The groovin' black Hoss Cartwright. Done.

One of those 'overnight' wonders who toiled right along side just about every other great talent in R&B for 15 years before this huge crossover hit. Chess stalwarts Pete Cosey on guitar, Louis Satterfield on bass, Sonny Thompson on piano, and a very young Maurice White (Earth, Wind and Fire) on drums.

Discovered by Bo Diddley, played alongside Marvin Gaye. Tragedy struck in the year 1970 (along with , Jimi and Janis) off a bridge in North Carolina, with most of his band. This is his testament.
