postheadericon Percy Sledge has Gone

Screen Shot 2015-04-15 at 9.52.01 AMR  and B great Percy Sledge passed on Tuesday, April 14th. He was 74 years of age.  Percy is best known for his soulful chart topping 1966 hit, “When A Man Loves a Woman. “ He died from Liver Cancer.

Percy’s humble beginnings began in Leighton Alabama where as a boy, he picked cotton and hummed and sang all day long. He sung in the church where he honed his singing skills. Later, working as an orderly in a hospital, a patient heard him singing and introduced him to a record producer.  They recorded Percy’s huge hit which sold more than a million copies and became the label first gold record.

He was inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2005.  His albums included “Warm and Tender Soul,” “The Percy Sledge Way,” “Take Time To Know Her,” and many other great hits. His first and biggest hit was covered by Michael Bolton which topped the Charts and garnered a Grammy for Michael.  Percy’s final album was “The Gospel of Percy Sledge,” released in 2013.

In an earlier interview, Percy said the song, “When a Man Loves A Woman” was in a response to a woman that left him for another man. He never received one penny of royalties from the song because he was not listed as a writer.  The royalties went to his band mates.

Percy is gone, but his soulful ballards will live on forever…
