With Just A Hint Of Mayhem

Music trivia, useless info, extra added random stuff and the odd rant from me

I heard the sad news today of the death of soul legend Percy Sledge. Many people perhaps know him for the classic heartfelt song “When A Man Loves A Woman” which is among my all time favourites. However he also recorded some other sublime songs. I really love “Warm And Tender Love”. When it was first issued in 1966 “When A Man Loves A Woman” went to number one in the USA and Canada and to number four in the UK. It fared better in the UK when it was reissued in 1987 as part of a Levi’s Jeans advertising campaign, when it hit number 2.

Percy died from liver cancer aged just 73. He will be a big loss to the music world. My thoughts go out to his family, friends and fans. Percy Sledge RIP.
