willie tee 1944-2007

i had heard that nola legend willie tee was going to be performing with the new orleans social club at millenium park last month, but on the day of the show, his name was left off the bill...i had no idea it was because he was sick...wlson "willie tee" turbinton died last tuesday due to complications from colon cancer at the young age of 63...visit home of the groove for a proper tribute & a ton of great tracks.

related: well, they say funky people die in threes...along with willie tee & joe zawinul (who stevie wonder paid tribute to last week), the original hype man, bobby byrd, has left us as well...damn.
