Sad indeed, he was responsible for many a person becoming a soul fan. Mission accomplished.

Very sorry to hear that indeed. I do hope that he had the opportunity to read the many heartfelt comments posted here and that he got a sense of just how loved he was.

 

RIP, Billy Butler.

Amazing the talent that came out of one Chicago housing project. Sure Billy won't object to being hailed the second greatest songwriter from that complex.  R.I.P.  a soul legend and a NS pioneer.
