I didn't know one of them was gone. That sucks. I really injoy there music. I still play them pretty regular. Along with all the great r and b from the 70s some of the best music ever. They played live on good morning America last year. They were still great. God bless them

On the right side of Eddie LeVert who’s in the middle.

He died way too young
