New Year Tragedies 2

Wednesday January 13th. The world (and Philly) lost one of the greats in Teddy Pendergrass.

I can't say much more about him that hasn't already been said.

When I hear his music, I am 8 years old again. I didn't know what he was signing about, but I knew that he was what men were supposed to be.

Back in the day, you couldn't get no shaper than this!

I couldn't wait to be one just like him when I grew up. I wanted to love a woman like he said I was supposed to. He reminded me of my Dad and my older brother.

He will be missed

Thanks to magazine waxpoetic for this dope cover and story.
