Motown Legend Dies
Motown Legend Dies was a top story from March and here it is again as we look back at the biggest stories from 2009 so far: (Reuters) Motown drummer Uriel Jones, whose hard-driving funk propelled classic tunes by the Temptations and Marvin Gaye, died in a Michigan hospital on Tuesday after suffering complications from a heart attack, a family member said. He was 74.
Jones, the last surviving drummer in the Motown session band known as the Funk Brothers, was stricken in mid-February but had been showing signs of improvement, said his sister-in-law Leslie Coleman.
He relapsed last Tuesday, and died at Oakwood Hospital & Medical Center in Dearborn, she told Reuters. - more on this story
