SOUL MUSIC in L.A. has taken a hard hit these last few weeks. Icons from the 50s, 60s (Johnny Otis, Etta James) and now Mr. Don Cornelius.
Saturday afternoons weren’t complete without this going on in the background. It was a fashion show as much as it was about the music and dancing. It was a vivid snapshot of the culture in the moment.
RIP, Don C.
Tragic end to a man who brought so much vivid joy.
