Everybody Needs Somebody to Love

R.I.P. Solomon Burke — he died on his way to a gig in Amsterdam.  The next time I get a chance to slow dance, I’ll play one of your songs.

    God, that voice was so amazing! RIP, Mr. Burke. You’ll always be the charming Daddy Mention from The Big Easy. He was so amazing. Thanks for this, Raymond.

    Without Solomon, there’s no Isaac Hayes. There’s no Barry White (illustrated by his opening for “All The Way”)! An immeasurable loss to R&B, soul, music and to us.

    @NYCPenpusher: Oh, absolutely right! Thanks, Raymond, for a fine tribute to him and his music.

    Seriously, Penpusher!!! Very much in agreement on that point. I keep saying it, but damn, his voice was amazing.
