Catchin Up, Gone But Not Forgotten

Willie Mitchell set in motion the careers of many soul performers and had worked with Rod Stewart and John Mayer.

Didn’t catch a whole lot of news over the past 30 days.  But I did hear stuff here and there.  I wanted to give some love out to Willie Mitchell who passed recently at the age of 81.  Mitchell was the producer for Al Green and you know how that matchup went.  VERY WELL!

We also lost the ‘Teddy Bear’ Teddy Pendergrass who started out playing the drums for the Philadelphia group Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes before becoming the lead singer on most of their hit songs.  Teddy had a great solo career as well.  His voice was unbelievably commanding and distinct.  He will be missed. 

May these two musical legends rest in peace~

Their contributions will go on forever!

1Love
