John Ussery began playing guitar in the mid-fifties. Between then and 1974 he played and/or recorded for John Lee Hooker, Jimmy Witherspoon, Eric Burdon and the Animals, Delaney and Bonnie, and numerous others.
Ussery did some recordings with his band Locomotive back in '69 (MGM Records), and cut a solo LP, "USSERY" (Mercury Records) in '74. Shortly after, he left the music business before returning in 1991. (via johnussery.com)
