Rhythm and Blues Artist. A native of Philadelphia, he and Gene McFadden formed a group called the Epsilons, were discovered by Otis Redding and toured with him until his death, in 1967. The two wrote several hit songs performed by others in the 1970's, including "Back Stabbers," "For the Love of Money," "I'll Always Love My Mamma," "Bad Luck," "Wake Up Everybody," "Where Are All My Friends?" "The More I Want" and "Cold, Cold World." "Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now," a platinum record, went to No. 1 on the R & B charts and reached No. 13 on the pop charts. The song became the anthem for the Phillies as they made their way to a World Series championship in 1980 and for the Eagles as they reached the Super Bowl in 1981. Cause of death was from a non intended gun shot wound outside his West Oak Lane, Philadelphia home.  (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
