A soul singer who I never worked with but I loved his songs for over 30 years. Whilst 15 years old a school friend called David Mackledon, who could score from the half way line like Beckham, swagger into school wearing Aramis scent, whilst humming songs off the latest Al Green album, introduced me to Al Green as the perfect soundtrack to a night on the sofa with your girlfriend. If it was good enough for coolest guy in school it had to be worth checking out.
Over 30 years later Al's music still sits on my iPod, in my record collection and I saw him live in London in 2006 - he can still hit all those notes perfectly. One of my favorite songs from Mr Green's repertoire is "You Ought To Be With Me" check it out here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H1Rrmdtye0E&feature=related
