Not sure how many people here would be familiar with The Ohio Players, didn’t seem many people deeply familiar with funk when Maurice White died. Ohio Players were a funk band mostly known for their stuff in the 70s, as is often the case, though a fair bit of good 80s funk too,. Did a lot of good stuff, worked with George Clinton too. Some of my favorite funk jams are by them. Jones was 75 and had been sick for a while so it’s not a huge surprise. Still sad.
You gotta have heard Fire or Love Rollercoaster SOMEWHERE, those things were HUGE hits:
God the bass on Roller coaster is so funkin’ sick. Hell, fire’s is amazing too. Listen to that shit with the bass turned up on your subwoofer.
