Rosco N. Gordon III (April 10, 1928 – July 11, 2002) was an American blues singer, pianist, and songwriter. He is best known for his hit songs “Booted,” (1952), “No More Doggin'” (1952), and “Just a Little Bit” (1960). Gordon was a pioneer of the Memphis blues style. He played piano in a style known as the “Rosco rhythm,” with the emphasis on the off-beat. This rhythm was an influence on later musical styles.
