Bobby Womack // Rest In Peace

June 30, 2014

This weekend saw the passing of one of music’s true legends. It was an honour to meet him here at Brownswood and spend some time dissecting the accomplishments and challenges of a professional career spanning close to 60 decades. You can listen to some of what the great man had to say on my BBC Radio 6Music show from 2012 here:

And here’s the extended podcast version of that interview, with a few additional stories that didn’t make it onto the final show.

As one song, Only Survivor, put it: “They call me a living legend/But I’m just a soldier who’s been left behind.” And a legend he was. Rest in Peace Bobby Womack.
