1943 - 9/27/12: Singer who's big hit was the 1969 "Take A Letter Maria" (Address it to my wife; send a copy to my lawyer, got to start a new life) as best as I can remember; you know, it's surprising how something you haven't heard in 40+ years can come back to you by just hearing the title.
 But the interesting part is actually the fact that I was surprised to find out that he was black! And this I found out in the email notification of his death showed up in my inbox, because he sure didn't sound black when he sang, and I don't mean that in a racist way, just you can usually tell black & white singers apart.
 So, anyway, sorry to see another bit of my past go...
Rock on RB, rock on...
