Play me out

GREAT MUSICIANS KEEP DYING.

R.I.P. Philly soul legend Teddy Pendergrass, smoldering even in lip-sync mode.

> Here’s his intense (and lengthy) version of the disco anthem “Don’t Leave Me This Way”with his band Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes, heard on Crap From the Past last weekend.

R.I.P. Jay Reatard, Memphis punk kid with a Detroit edge. I hardly knew ya.

R.I.P. Vic Chesnutt, whose quietly devastating songs could render whole clubs speechless, using words nobody else would dare to lyricize (“intravenous Demerol,” “surreptitiously”).
