Rest In Peace To Soul Music Icon Bobby Womack
Bobby Womack has died today (June 27). The Soul/R&B music icon penned such hits as “Across 110th Street” for the film of the same name, “If You Think You’re Lonely Now,” and even the Rolling Stones’ first #1 song, “It’s All Over Now.” In recent years, Womack had toured with The Gorillaz, and in turn, De La Soul, Yasiin Bey, and others.
He was 70 years old at the time of his death. The Cleveland, Ohio native remained active in music through to the time of his death. Like the late Gil Scott-Heron and Tyler, The Creator, Womack was an artist at XL Recordings. Two years ago this month, Bobby released The Bravest Man On Earth, his 27th studio LP.
