You know my belief in the CDT (Celebrity Death Trifecta). It looks as though one is being written as we speak. I say “written” as two brilliant songwriters just died. Steve was on top of things yesterday and blogged about Jerry Leiber. Now, add [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Nick Ashford[/lastfm] to that list. He just died of throat cancer at age 70. You probably remember Nick from the husband/wife duo [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Ashford & Simpson[/lastfm]. But, do you remember all the legendary Motown hits he and his wife penned for others?
