Ray Charles 1930-2004.

Ray Charles died June 10'th aged 73. I saw him play in Tivoli in 2001 I think, not a stellar performance, but his influence on modern music both as a composer, arranger, and performer has been lauded so many times you understand that it was no coincidence his nickname became simply: The Genius.
He also wrote one of my all time favourite songs - I got a woman.
