Musicians have been paying their respects via Twitter to soul legend Teddy Pendergrass, who died yesterday.
“Celebrate our legends while they’re still with us,” wrote R&B singer Tyrese, “I spent many weeks with him. Teddy I HONOR you and Thank You for making R&B Raspy Sexy!!” Roots drummer ?uestlove, who, like Pendergrass, hails from Philadelphia, noted that, “soul will never be the same.” Jazzy Jeff, another Philadelphian, recalled how “Teddy gave me advice when I 1st started…very sad day.” Finally, Keri Hilson wrote simply, “RIP Teddy Pendergrass.”
