First Leiber, Now Ashford

View Comments

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?
