Is Soul Music Dying?
You have to wonder if the Soul Music you grew up with is dying a slow death? In the past few years, artists that have nothing to do with today's R&B have all died: Rick James, Luther Vandross, Ray Charles, Barry White, Lou Rawls, Eugene Record(not much mention of his passing in 2005) and now Wilson Pickett. I'm sure I've missed some. But, jeez, these have been hard times for people like me who love Soul Music.
