OTIS SPANN d1970. American blues musician who many consider to have beeen the leading postwar Chicago Blues pianist. He died of liver cancer aged 40 in 1970. He was buried in the Burr Oak Cemetery in Illinois. His grave was unmarked for almost thirty years, until Steve Salter (president of the Killer Blues Headstone Project) wrote a letter to Blues Revue magazine, saying ; "This piano great is lying in an unmarked grave. Let's do something about this deplorable situation". Blues enthusiasts from around the world sent donations to purchase a headstone. On June 6th 1999, the marker was unveiled in a private ceremony. The stone reads ; "Otis played the deepest blues we ever heard – He'll play forever in our hearts ............". He was posthumously elected to the Blues Hall of Fame in 1980.

Description:

An original (circa 1960s) cutting from a visitors book, clearly signed in black ballpoint by Muddy Waters.

 

Certification:

From a fantastic collection of visitors books dated between the mid 1960s to the mid 1980s, containing literally hundreds of celebrity signatures. The visitors books were collected by the staff and employees of Barclays Bank at Heathrow Airport during this period ; we assume this branch must have been located in or close to the VIP lounge. The autographs are almost all dated, many include the addresses of the signers and collectors notations / stamps by the original (bank employee) obtainers. There are also references to the bank and quality of service by some of the signers. By the very nature of the books the signatures really authenticate themselves and provide a fascinating insight and mix of famous British and American names of the period. High profile signers include ; Muhammad Ali / Robert De Niro / Jack Nicholson / Sid Vicious / Marlon Brando / Mick Jagger / Keith Moon / Sylvester Stallone / Roy Orbison / Thin Lizzy / Graham Hill etc etc. AFTAL Dealer No13 and UACC RD Memorabilia UK
