    This man is like the father I never had. His music was essential to me dating and increasing the chances of getting some. Which I did!



    This man is a genius. His dead corpse is capable of more romance and passion than the average living male.

    Sad day indeed - the man was a visionary of sorts with his ideas of orchestral music and double funk guitar parts.



    What's also sad is that I only found this out by visiting the AI boards.



    RIP Mr White.



    Quote from liner notes to Barry White - ALL TIME GREATEST HITS by David Ritz:



    Quote:

    "The mistress", he says referring back to his music, "can never be satisfied. That's because the mistress is music. Lady music is the woman I'm trying to please. She keeps me up, has me obsessed, drives me crazy. She's real and she isn't. She's pure. She says, 'I'll come to you in any form, I'll be anything you want, anything you can create, whatever you imagine.' She never stops beckoning, never stops demanding. A curse and a blessing, a whore and a saint, a witch and a goddess, my joy and my frustration."
