R.I.P. Andrew Love

Andrew Love, part of the Memphis Horns, passed away this past Thursday at the age of 70. He had been suffering from Alzheimer's for about the past decade.

As part of the Memphis Horns, Love played a part in the work of many artists, both expected and not. He worked with a slew of performers, from Elvis Presley to Dusty Springfield, to U2. He has been a part of what made many iconic songs just that, iconic.

Goodbye, Andrew Love.

Otis Redding - "Try a Little Tenderness"

Dusty Springfield - "Son of a Preacher Man"

Aretha Franklin - "Think"
