 Today (Jan. 13), Best Classic Bands received word from veteran music journalist Larry LeBlanc that Taylor’s wife of 52 years, Janee, confirmed his passing. The report indicated that Taylor had been briefly hospitalized a year ago with Covid-19, but had been living at home ever since, under hospice care. Taylor was 82.

I think for many of us out there - that school disco / youth club moment of hearing the opening bars to “ There’s a Ghost in my House “ and seeing the older boys and girls hit the dance floor  and your thinking “ WTF “ is all this about ! 
So thank you Mr Taylor and sleep well from a generation who kept your music and memory firmly alive

Really sad news. I can remember Gotta See Jane playing on the car radio in 1968. I really liked this song even though I was only about 12 at the time. Indiana Wants Me was also a decent track released a couple of years later. I too, like many others, was smitten by There’s A Ghost In My House when it came out in the 70’s. I can distinctly recall it being played on my first trip to the Casino in March 1974 - it was a stunning tune then and is just as enjoyable when you hear it today. R. Dean Taylor will always be a Motown legend for me.
