I often wondered if Donald Fagan was referring to Richie & Crew when he wrote Hey Nineteen.
"Hard times befallen the Soul Survivors..."
No matter, Richie's voice was timeless and sensuous. I'm sorry he's gone.
Like so many premies, we saw eachother year after year at programs. Many I never knew by name but caught one another's eye as we passed in the hall.
Hmm, those were the days. I wonder if Prem cares about his lost legions of devotees ? Or is sentiment like that too human for a Sat Guru ?
