RIP: Charles ‘Skip’ Pitts – 1947-2012

Posted on: Wednesday, May 2, 2012

Sad to record the death of guitarist Charles ‘Skip’ Pitts, at the age of 65. He was born in Washington DC, but moved to Memphis in 1970. A long-time musical associate of Isaac Hayes, he is probably best known for the distinctive wah-wah guitar on the “Shaft” theme from the 1971 film.
