Like so many others i am still not over the passing of one of my favorite songwriters, Nick Ashford to throat cancer. As we all know he was half of the amazing songwriting team, Ashford & Simpson, a father, husband and a great role model for the black community. I look up to a lot of people musically but dont tend to aspire to follow in their footsteps personally. But Nick Ashford was one of the exceptions. He loved his wife, his kids, and his craft.
I found this report on them from my favorite show on tv. No matter where i am in the world every sunday morning i get up to watch CBS Sunday Morning. It is the best, most informative, well produced show on tv and i love it. Check it out, you wont be disappointed, and why not start with their report on Ashford & Simpson.
