Legendary songwriter Nick Ashford – who penned some of music’s best known rock and soul classics with his wife – has died. He had been suffering from throat cancer and had undergone radiation treatment. How ironic that a man who’s voice was his trade should die of throat cancer.  Nick and Valerie, Valerie and Nick, almost synonymous for over 40 years.

Nick Ashford Of Ashford & Simpson Dies But Leaves A Legacy Of Love

Their love gave voice to Tammi Terrel and Marvin Gaye in songs such as “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”, “You’re All I Need To Get By”, “Ain’t Nothing Like the Real Thing”. When I was growing up that’s how I learned about the expression of  love and true friendship. It was from listening to those songs. Years later, they took their partnership to the opening of the “Sugar Bar”, a restaurant with fantastic food and great music. The love and legacy he leaves behind will live forever.
