Google+ Beathearts: Barry White (September 12, 1944 – July 4, 2003)


Barry White (September 12, 1944 – July 4, 2003)

"Maestro of love", "The Sultan of Smooth Soul", "The Rotund Romeo", "The Prince of Pillowtalk", "Buddha of the Boudoir" the list goes on...

Today one of the greatest soul voices of all time would've turned 67 years old. Barry Eugene White, singer and producer extraorindaire was of course a great inspiration to many of the Beathearts related artists.

There were so many sides to the man's life that still today we get stunned by stray facts about Mr. White that hit us:
  • Appearantly White was about to collaborate with Marvin Gaye on a new Gaye album in 1984. White said that Marvin Gaye phoned him one week before being found dead.
  • At the age of 17 he was jailed for stealing $30,000 worth of Cadillac tires
  • Sold over 100 million records worldwide
  • L.A. gang member with the bullwhip (!) as his weapon of choice
Multifaceted indeed...Here's a lil' edit we found today reading up on Mr.White. Nicely put together by DJ Kimo:

R.I.P. Barry White.
