Many of the "older readers" will remember Barry White, an American singer who also wrote and produced many songs and had 106 Gold Albums by the time he passed away in 2003.
Some may also recall that he composed music for the Love Unlimited Orchestra.

Barry had a troubled youth and grew up in the lifestyle of crime and gangs.
He found a way out through music and was firmly against hard drugs.

While I was never into Disco music, I always enjoyed his music.

For a while he lived in Sherman Oaks, a suburb of Los Angeles.
His main home was on a hillside and he owned a second home above it which he converted into his recording studio.

There were countless nights we would play video games and talk when a lightning bolt of inspiration would come and we would walk up the hill to lay down the initial tracks for a new hit song.

He appreciated my input so much that he actually gave me credit on one of his albums.

One of my favorite songs from that album was "Sho' you right".

I was quite sad when he moved to Reno and then when I heard he was ill and passed away.
I still miss him and his incredible voice.

Do you enjoy the music of Barry White?
