Remembering Bobby Byrd
September 17, 2007
Alan Leeds, one of my heroes and our greatest record of the living history of funk music, offers a warm remembrance of Bobby Byrd after Byrd's passing last week. Well worth a read, especially to understand that every great sidekick had the potential to be the front man.
You might also want to revisit Goodbye, Godfather, from when we lost James Brown last year.
