WE LOST A GIANT, Rev. Timothy Wright





It saddens me to post that legendary Gospel Singer, Reverend Timothy Wright passed away yesterday. He was one of my musical heros, and his son and i are very good friends. Last year his car was hit by a drunk driver while returning from a Christian retreat. His wife and grandson were killed in the accident, and Rev Wright never quite recovered from his injuries. Please keep the Wright family in your prayers. For more information goto, www.blackvoices.com/blogs/category/gospel

JOHN MADDEN RETIRES


Sure this isn't music related but one of the most famous music studio past times is wooping somebody in John Madden Football.  Sadly John Madden is retiring from the broadcast booth.  I've long since retired from playing John Madden football.  Just no longer had the time to maintain my level of play.  But...  thru the years i was known as JMK (John Madden King), and it clearly wasnt just a nickname.  My list of casualties include: 
- Jazzy Jeff and all of the Touch of Jazz crew.  
- Actually pretty much all of philly who came to Jeff's Studio.
- Tracy Lee
- Anyone who went to Howard University from 92-97
-The entire Dip Set crew outside of Juelz Santana (he wasnt there.  Oh an Jim Jones took an L in NBA Live not Madden)
- Darious Rucker (Hootie and The Blow Fish) - was called to play him after he beat all of philly.  I came in and he was beating me 17-0.  I finally figured out his game and beat him 27-17.

Thanks Mr. Madden for the enjoyable times in the booth, on the field and with the sticks.
