One of Soul's great Singer/Songwriters is 60! years old.
Happy Birthday Prince!
Phillip is better known and more appreciated in Europe than in the States.
He recently toured and plans are that he will soon return.
He wrote so many great songs recorded by some of the top
soul singers...check out the link for a list.

I had the pleasure to meet him and he is one great guy.

Phillip, life begins at 60.. starting all over again!

Ben E. King and AWB did him justice in '77 with their version of "A Star In The Ghetto"!

Thanks for the reaction Kevin,
That track was biographical...Phillip also doing his own version.
I just think it sad.. that noone really knows about this legend of our music...certainly noone in the U.S.A.
