Willie 'Popsy' Dixon, Holmes Brothers Drummer/Vocalist, Dies at 72
Alligator Records said Dixon died Friday in Richmond after a recent diagnosis of stage four bladder cancer. He was 72.
Born in Virginia Beach, Dixon met brothers Sherman and Wendell Holmes at a New York gig in 1967. They played the bar circuit until 1979 when they officially formed the Holmes Brothers.
Dixon was known for his soaring, soulful, multi-octave vocals and his driving drumming, according to an Alligator Records news release.
With the Holmes Brothers, Dixon toured the world and released 12 albums. Their most recent release was 2014's Brotherhood on Alligator.
