Ben E. King Passes Away

Ben E. King passed away.  His recording of Stand By Me is as great as they come.  I don’t even hesitate to say that it will last as long as civilization does.  The definition of timeless.  It is romantic, Biblical, and apocalyptic all at once.  You could live in that recording.  He was also a member of The Drifters and wrote hits such as This Magic Moment.
