Years of cocaine abuse can do it.

I dont know about the cocaine abuse in this case.....I've been a fan since the beginning.He had one of the great rock voices.And was quite good at selecting the right material to showcase it.

Yeah its starting to be quite a rotten year for talent.

James Brown called him the white godfather of soul in an interview one time if memory serves me. (or something similar)

I just missed it on the news .... ran over here to see if it was true.

Think I'm gonna listen to a couple of his CD's now.


Rest in peace Robert.

Wow...

What a singer..

And a rare middle age style king

A big loss..

Definetely his heart would have been a little 'tired out' from the Columbian marching powder, that part is no secret in the industry...

Lets be carefull out there...
