Singer/songwriter Jimmy Mccracklin has died aged 91.
The musician passed away on Thursday (20Dec12) at a nursing facility in San Pablo, California. The exact cause of his death was not known as Wenn went to press.
MCCracklin was best known for his 1958 dance hit The Walk which he recorded with his band, the Blues Blasters.
After performing the song on DICk Clark's popular Tv show American Bandstand, it was later covered by the Beatles during their Let It Be sessions.
MCCracklin went on to release more than 20 albums, scoring hits with songs including Just Got to Know, Think and Shame, Shame, Shame.
His song Tramp, which was co-written with blues star Lowell Fulson, became a hit when Otis Redding and Carla Thomas recorded it in 1967, and it was also adapted by Salt-n-Pepa in 1986.
In the 1960s, MCCracklin also founded the Art-Tone record label. He released his last album, Hey Baby, in 2010.
