As any self respecting rock and roll fan already knows, in recent weeks we lost some of the great black entertainers of all time: Etta James, Jimmy Castor, (honorary black man) Johnny Otis and Don Cornelius. What with yesterdays news of Whitney Houston's untimely passing, i'm beginning to wonder why folks aren't already getting their own "Dead pools" going. Safe money would be on B.B. King or Chuck Berry if you ask me. Christ, ole Chucks got one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel at this point... But me, i like to go for the long shots sometimes. My moneys on Andre Williams. For two reasons: First- He's wicked old, second- i own one of his 45s. (I own plenty of Chuck & B.B. stuff too, but we've heard it all before.) I'm not much of a gambling man so I don't have a method or a system, I just like to keep things simple and follow my gut...
Anyone got any other predictions/wagers? I'd love to hear em.
Here's Andre from 1967, way back when he was only in his early 30s.
