R.I.P. FRANKIE KNUCKLES
Just returned from Frankie Knuckles' wonderful memorial at the Liberty Theater. Many titans of soulful dance music in attendance, and their wonderful tributes to both the man and his legacy of music. But my favorite might have been a high school friend of Frankie's who said they were at a bar one night in the 70s and Frankie was wearing a bandana as hair. A man asked him his name and Frankie said "Setta." The guy asked "Setta who?" Frankie replied "Setta Knuckles if you don't pronounce it right!"
