Musician. A guitarist, he was a founding member and lead vocalist of the soul ensemble "Bloodstone". They will be best remembered for their platinum single "Natural High" (1973). Formed in 1962, as a doo-wop group called "The Sinceres", they made a name for themselves in their hometown of Kansas City, Missouri. After a decade of struggling to find fame, they achieved commercial success during the early 1970s, after relocating to London and securing a contract with the Decca label. In 1972, their self-titled debut album "Bloodstone" was released and this was followed with "Natural High" a year later. The single "Natural High" reached number ten on the US Billboard Charts. The group went on to record more than ten albums over the next three decades. The group starred in the 1975 motion picture "Train Ride to Hollywood". "Bloodstone" is widely recognized by many for their contributions to music which bridged the genres of soul with funk. Love died of complications from pneumonia. (bio by: C.S.)
