RIP Teddy Pendergrass

Really sad news about a great singer.  Teddy Pendergrass, who passed away this week aged 59, was the first black male singer to record five consecutive multi-platinum albums in the US. In his later life he did much work for charity. In homage to his unique styling, Pendergrass was also one of the inspirations for UK comedian Lenny Henry's Theophilus P.Wildebeeste character.

Here's one of my favourite Teddy Pendergrass songs.
