Attendees At The Funk Bros. Hollywood Star Ceremony

Recommended Posts

Tabs,

 

This is why Eddie Willis' speech was so wonderful.  Eddie included everyone who contributed to The Funks' sound.  Eddie mentioned the horns, violins, arrangers and background singers.  Of course, I love me some Mike Terry but The Funks were considered just the rhythm section.

 

I was so happy that the families were there to represent everyone.

Thanks for the link. :thumbup:

Shame that Mike Terry isn't included though.

For Eddie Willis' speech only, look at The Funks - Hollywood Star started first.  I think it's reply #10.  The longer version, I just posted.
