SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — One of the big players in the Chicago blues scene has died. Otis Clay died suddenly of a heart attack on Friday at the age of 73, according to his daughter. Clay’s best-known song is “Trying To Live My Life Without You” from 1972, which Bob Seger later turned into a hit. Clay first released a string of gospel-tinged soul records in the 1960s. He never stopped recording and touring and he was nominated for two awards at the Blues Music Awards in May. Clay was also an active player in charity projects in Chicago.
