Lost Another One: RIP Percy Sledge, November 25, 1940-April 14, 2015

Sad news to pass on today in Ahmet's House...that our great soul crooner, the legendary Percy Sledge, has finished his story. It is now up to all of us left to make sure history does not forget. We never will...

So just two days before the 49th anniversary of the release of "When a Man Loves a Woman", one of the greatest statements ever sung on the ever mysterious workings of our most intimate feelings, we say goodbye to the talented young man from Alabama...leaving us today at the age of 74.

The One and Only

This Sunday (April 19th) we will celebrate some of Percy's other great songs in "Ahmet's House".
