RIP GENERAL JOHNSON

October 15, 2010

Very sad news has reached us about the death of General Johnson, the lead singer of Chairmen of the Board, and one of soul music’s great survivors.

Writes Soul Tracks:

“Formed in Detroit , the Chairmen were one of the first acts signed by songwriting legends Holland/Dozier/Holland for their Invictus label following H/D/H’s messy divorce from Motown. The group came out of the box strong in 1970 with the wonderful “Give Me Just A Little More Time,” a classic early 70s radio smash highlighted by lead singer General Johnson’s emotive, plaintive vocals.”
