Solomon Burke passed away at age 70 in Amsterdam's Schipol Airport. He was there to perform a sold out concert with a local soul/R&B band. He never got the due of some of her peers, maybe due to the peripatetic nature of her career. He could do gospel,soul, blues and even country in an authentic way that took the material out of any one genre. As good a singer as he was, he had an even bigger heart. Rest in peace.
