Teddy Pendergrass was unquestionably one of the greatest male vocalists in the genre of R&B. Initially the drummer for Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes, his voice is featured on their hits “Bad Luck,” “Where Are All My Friends,” “Be For Real” and “Wake Up Everybody.

Throughout his solo career, he dropped gems like “I Don’t Love You Anymore,” “Close The Door,” “Turn Off the Lights,” and “Joy.”

When I spoke to him in the latter 90s, he talked about his then new album “You and I”; rekindling a working relationship with Stephanie Mills while doing “Your Arms to Short to Box with God”; his book “Truly Blessed”; working with Harold Melvin; and his thoughts on R&B.

    It was obvious Teddy was not feeling well, yet still great interview.
