What the hell is going on with this thing we call life!? News broke earlier this morning that acclaimed soul singer Charles Bradley has passed away following a long bout with stomach cancer at the age of 68. Bradley was diagnosed with the disease back in 2016 and underwent treatment which seemed produce a successful outcome and was cleared to return back to touring and performing. Since 2002, Charles has remained busy and has recorded a slew of 45’s and 3 LPs on the Daptone label that will stay with us forever in our hearts.

Our condolences go out to his family on this heartbreaking day.
