RIP Teddy Pendergrass

I was planning on putting up about a half dozen rips to honor the man, the legend, Teddy Pendergrass, who passed away tonight at Bryn Mawr Hospital not five miles from where I sit, but instead I'll just put up two favorites and leave it to you to go and cop Love TKO, Close the Door and others to help pay for the flowers at the man's funeral.

It wasn't long ago that I was standing outside a bar on Baltimore Avenue with a man in his seventies who was telling me about his short-lived doo-wop career in the early 60s in Philly. Somehow the subject came to Mister Teddy P, and the man said something to the effect of "he used to be a drummer, but once Harold Melvin found out he could sing, the man turned into the hugest asshole you ever did see."
