Rest In Peace, Nick Ashford

| Filed under: Music MinuteR.I.P.

Motown genius Nick Ashford has died of throat cancer. He was 69.

Ashford wrote and produced a myriad Motown classics with his wife, Valerie Simpson.

Some of his songs include Aint No Mountain High Enough, You're All I need to Get By, Let's Go Get Stoned, and I'm Every Woman.

In 1984, he and Valerie made their Solid (As A Rock) video (watch above).

His last work was a collaboration album with Maya Angelo — 1996's Been Found.

Ashford and his wife were inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2002.

It's a sad die when we lose someone, especially when that someone is a true artist.

Rest in peace, Nick Ashford.
