  1. I searched and didn't find any other threads on it, but apparently Motown singer Edwin Starr has passed away. He's the guy best known for the hit song "War." More here and also here.

    I've only heard a few of his songs, but that's too bad...I loved his voice.
     
  2. RIP, Edwin. :(

    I didn't know he lived in England.

    Dang...I just bought War & Peace and Involved, 2 of Starr's albums on 1 cd.
    Check out www.dustygrooves.com for some decent deals on Starr's albums...
