Another musician has passed.
I must acknowledge that he was a part of my growing up years.
The sheer number of the work he produced would have been hard to miss.
And now I have another admission, I wasn’t a fan.
He had a wonderful voice and was a talented musician.
I just did not care much for his style, I guess you could say.
Like Michael Jackson, who was an excellent performer, it just wasn’t my cup of tea.
I could jump on the bandwagon and say I actually loved his music all the time, but that, to me, would be the ultimate in disrespect.
I am sorry for his family and his friends who will miss him.
For his fans he was a light that went out way to soon.
We only knew him from his work; his friends and family will mourn the man and the rest of the world the artist.
Whichever group one falls into, we have to admit he made an impact and that is no small accomplishment.
Feel free to share your thoughts if you were a fan.
