Twangville


Solomon Burke, 1940-2010

by in In Memoriam, News, Soul, Videos

The music world lost one of the great ones today with the passing of Solomon Burke. Here are two classic Burke performances to celebrate the life of the man referred to as the King of Rock and Soul.

The first, a duet with Patty Griffin on her moving — and fitting — song “Up On the Mountain.” The second, a surprise appearance by Burke to join the Rolling Stones on Burke’s classic “Everybody Needs Somebody to Love.”
