What Becomes of the Broken Hearted

That's Uriel playing the blue set. And by the way, that's Bob Babbitt on bass. This clip is from "Standing in the Shadows of Motown"; if you've never seen it, I highly recommend it. These guys were an important part of our history.

I hate to hear that about Uriel. Great grooveman and awesome person.

I have that DVD Dave and that is my favorite track on it. Joan does a great job singing it.

Sad news....again
We seem to be hearing so much sadness in the world at the moment.
Must say though.......the singer is just superb!....Never heard of her before (that's what comes with leading a Howard Hughes style of life)

Life still goes on guys......just a little more pain added.
