    We are coming up on the 50th anniversary (December 11) of Cooke being shot - a bizarre end.
    This my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, that is, if I'm not joking.

    'Sam Cooke died 50 years ago this week, an anniversary that is receiving little or no organized fanfare. It’s not that Cooke is entirely forgotten: His 1960 hit “(What A) Wonderful World” – “Don’t know much about history…” – has been streamed more than 15 million times on Spotify, and his reading of his civil-rights anthem “A Change Is Gonna Come” is approaching 10 million streams on the service.

    In 2005, he was the subject of “Dream Boogie: The Triumph of Sam Cooke,” a comprehensive biography by Peter Guralnick, who documented the life of Elvis Presley with similar thoroughness'.....much more at link.
