    "I never wanted to be famous. I only wanted to be great."

    Rest in peace.
  9. Sad.

    He really was influential to musicians and the music loving public in general. He's the guy that took the 'holy' out of gospel.

    On a lighter note, who's going to do lottery jingles?

    Just like Miles, Trane and Hendrix - when Ray would sing - you immediately knew
    it was him.

    I will miss him very much...
