A sad day for all lovers of real R&B. Next week I’ll be standing in the very studio where he recorded so many of his classics at 2120 South Michigan Avenue. The occasion will be tinged with a sense of sadness now.

I was privileged to see the great man at a festival at Bodelwyddan Castle, but must admit my memory of the set is clouded by vast amounts of alcohol on the day. He and his band were due on last, but actually appeared second last, and I recall the band hitting that beat for a good ten minutes before he strolled on! RIP Bo!
