Leroy "Sugarfoot" Bonner (1940-2013)

Got word that Leroy 'Sugarfoot' Bonner passed away. The Ohio Players vocalist was one of the voices that defined the funk sound of the 70s through tracks such as Funky Worm, Sweet sticky thing, Love rollercoaster and many others.

Here's Opolopo's ode to the man with a remix of a track he featured on from Herbie Hancok. RIP.

And as a bonus, if you haven't seen it already, here's a great documentary about the Ohio Players:
