    Bobby Womack dead at 70

    Bobby Womack, Songwriter and Musician, Dies at 70

    Bobby Womack, who spanned the American soul music era, touring as a gospel singer in the 1950s, playing guitar in Sam Cooke’s backup band in the early ’60s, writing hit songs recorded by Wilson Pickett and the Rolling Stones and composing music that broke onto the pop charts, has died, a spokeswoman for his record label said on Friday night.

    Excellent article at link ^ detailing his long career.

    R.I.P.
