Being a soul boy of the 80's,

Luthor Vandross (amongst others) was a favorite artist we listened to. Danced to, played in the car.

As a DMC dj, I remember when he played/hosted the DMC awards with Funkmaster Farley and Janet Jackson.

Tracks such as Saturday night (with Chirelle), never too late and many many more were staple dance floor fodder.

By all accounts he was a really nice fella.

rest in peace home boy, you'll be missed

Luther Vandross Dies at 54
ASSOCIATED PRESS
(Friday, July 01, 2005 8:39 pm)


NEW YORK (AP) -- Grammy award winner Luther Vandross, whose deep, lush voice on such hits as "Here and Now" and "Any Love" sold more than 25 million albums while providing the romantic backdrop for millions of couples worldwide, died Friday. He was 54.

Vandross died at John F. Kennedy Medical Center in Edison, N.J., said hospital spokesman Rob Cavanaugh. He did not release the cause of death but said in a statement that Vandross "never really recovered from" a stroke two years ago.

Since the stroke in his Manhattan home on April 16, 2003, the R&B crooner stopped making public appearances - but amazingly managed to continue his recording career. In 2004, he captured four Grammys as a sentimental favorite, including best song for the bittersweet "Dance With My Father."

LOL rockn!

I liked Dance with my father, but I ain't big on the R&B genre. I do remember, though, that the one time I'd watched Oprah in three years was the episode where O was playing "Dance With My Father" and telling everyone to get his album for Fathers' Day. Sad to see him go though. :(
