Lou Rawls Has Died
Today is a sad day for me. Lou Rawls has died. http://music.msn.com/music/article.aspx?news=211388>1=7653
I can remember driving around in my mom's big white Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme as a little boy. I can still see the big black 8 track tape sticking out of the dashboard as the music of Lou Rawls surrounded me. I can still see my mom grooving to the music as she sung along.
As a boy I was introduced to a lot of great R&B/Soul artists, and Lou Rawls was at the top of the list. I can remember how rich and smooth his voice sounded, and how today I still love to listen to his music.
As the years go by and more the artists I grew up listening to leave us, it feels as though a part of my childhood goes with them.
Thanks for the tunes Lou.
