Ciao Solomon!

In honour of the late, great “King of Soul”, Solomon Burke! One of the more entertaining concerts I’ve ever seen some years ago in a small northern town in Italy.

Memorable was Burke’s performance some years ago with the Rolling Stones in Chicago. He joined them on stage for “Everybody Needs Somebody To Love”, unquestionably his MOST famous song which is part of that great movie soundtrack, “The Blues Brothers! As Richards himself said, the boards of the stage began going up and down as Burke joined them on stage (Burke weighed some 300 pounds)! Sadly missed shall the great Solomon be by music fans the world over (all pics by M. Rimati)!
