Nothin' Better Than Sam Cooke

If you can find a sweeter soul singer than Sam Cooke, let me know, because I don't think it's possible.
Sam is another who was unfortunately snatched away from us before his time, but left us such amazing music to remember him by.
I ran over to allmusic.com before posting this to see what they said about him and made some amazing lofty comments: "Sam Cooke was the most important soul singer in history -- he was also the inventor of soul music, and its most popular and beloved performer in both the black and white communities. Equally important, he was among the first modern black performers and composers to attend to the business side of the music business, and founded both a record label and a publishing company as an extension of his careers as a singer and composer."

What more can I say than that?

My favorite Rod Stewart quote: "I love everything Sam Cooke ever did . . . that is execpt get stabbed in the stomach by a hooker". -or something like that.

Love the blog.
