    For me, music has died

    Spending my time on the internet, tonight, I learned that JOHNNY CARTER OF THE DELLS DIED LAST AUGUST 2009, AND RON BANKS OF THE DRAMATICS DIED LAST THURSDAY. WHAT A LOSS>

    I discovered The Dramatics having being introduced to their music via a friend-Colin Balfour and immediately set out to buy all their albums, then along came The Dells and took singing up another notch. Over the years I attended the concerts and found out what real singing was about.one night, back in 1999,Ron Banks did a tribute to Eddie Kendricks and David Ruffin. In the middle of the songs, the band stopped and the vocals soared,lights went out and candles came out..people cried that night..it was magic..never to be witness again.

    I have seen The Dells 11 times in my life and when Marvin Jnr hits and hold the looong note, in the song--stay in my corner, many men weep. no one has done it longer or better..i timed him at 1minute.16 seconds when they played the Beacon Theatre, New York .


    Tonight, I sleep with a heavy heart..

    THEY SANG..

    Man we should all be so lucky and successful in life as to touch someone...a stranger... the way that these guys touched you. That's the measure of a life and you can take comfort in knowing that they had successful lives...in the true sense of the word.

    sometimes when listening to this kind of music, i get envious of the people who grew up in this error... cause good music like this was the norm... great compositions, great voices...

    nowadays if music like this comes along, its always the exception and gets a special brand like "neo Soul" cause the know its the exception to the careless music that didnt take much thought

    I didn't know about them dying and i'm a big fan of there music. R.I.P. to the legends...losing too many of them.
    "Giving up is hard to do
    When you really love someone
    Giving up .... so hard to do
    When you still depend upon
    Her warm and tender touch
    Her kiss and her hug..........her caress
    Oooooh that used to mean so much
    And bring you happiness"

    - Donny Hathaway
