Mary Frierson AKA Wendy Rene (1947-12/16/2014)

Mary Frierson and her guitar playing brother Johnny formed the group The Drapels that caught the ear of Stax Records' Jim Stewart before she went solo as Wendy Rene. Here is their stellar "Young Man", featuring the Stax house rhythm section of Donald Dunn and Al Jackson, Jr. Sleep well, sleep well.

Wise Words from Yogi Horton

Horton was the seldom named, often heard drummer behind the Whatnauts, the Moments, and the rest of the Stang/ All Platinum family. This may be a little long for most people, but entirely worth it. If you're not into watching a great drummer stretch out, start at 2:07.
