Born Autry Dewalt Mixon in Blythesville, Arkansas- Junior Walker was an R&B singer and saxophonist who had 21 Hot 100 singles from 1965-72 with 12 making the Top 40. His biggest hit was his first “Shotgun” #4 in 1965. I am not much of a fan of Foreigner’s but they had a good single or two- maybe their best was “Urgent” in 1981- which featured Junior Walker on saxophone. Walker died of cancer in 1995 at the age of 65.
