I'd rather be at home with a Ray
I ain't got seventy days
'Cause there's nothing, there's nothing you can teach me
That I can't learn from Mr. Hathaway
Not one but two Soul giants namechecked by the great Amy Winehouse who also was well on her way to giantness when she sadly passed on.
Tempted as I was to feature Ray Charles I have opted instead for Donny Hathaway another tortured soul who took his own life at the age of 33 outliving Amy by 6 years.
I would like to think that Rehab introduced Donny to a whole new audience but sadly I suspect that that probably wasn't the case
Two true talents taken far too soon
More namechecking next Saturday
