Bobby Womack Has Left The Room

A fond farewell to one of the world's great soul artists.

Just got word (Friday June 28, 2014) from a Rolling Stone feed moments ago that Bobby Womack has passed away at age 70.

RIP Bobby Womack

If you missed this recent 2013 BBC documentary on the life of Bobby Womack titled Across A 110th Street, this is it below. It's filled with great stories, music and too many great artists to even mention.



Below is a tasty classic track from 1988 by Womack & Womack titled Teardrops



Just below is an old school Todd Rungren video with Bobby and many others helping Todd make a recording with a full band of real players,w strings, horns and all. This video is filled with sweet candid footage from the actual recording session for Rundgren's 1989 record titled Nearly Human.

The Rolling Stones paid tribute to Bobby Womack, who wrote one of their songs from 1964 titled It's All Over Now.
