I usually don't like blog about other things when I have a series going (Currently exploring New Orleans music), but sometimes you can't help it. Tonight, I was on Twitter when I read from Living Colours' page that Soul singer Solomon Burke passed away. Burke is a huge influence on the development of Rock and Pop music. Solomon has recorded 36 albums, had 35 major hits, and has won a few Grammy's. Burke died in Amsterdam, after a flight from Los Angeles. He was currently on tour, set to perform with Dutch rock band De Dijk.
Rest in peace King Solomon
