The Death of Otis Redding

On Dec 10th 1967 about 3:30 PM a twin-engine Beechcraft plane plunged into a cold Lake Monona near Madison, Wisconsin. Lost in the crash was Otis Redding and his back-up band the Bar-Kays. Otis was only 26 years old when he was taken and we lost the King of Soul. One member of the Bar-Kays did survive the crash and another member, the bass player, was not on the plane.
