    we lost another great one today.

    the voice of the Drifters Ben E. King has passed on. God must have said, "Ben, it's time for you to come and "Stand By Me"....

    Godspeed Ben ....

    Yup... me too. In fact, I still do.

    And, let us not forget that he also did There Goes My Baby, Save The Last Dance For Me, This Magic Moment, and I Who Have Nothing.

    That's a pretty serious musical legacy.

    R.I.P., Good Sir.
