This coming Sunday, September 1st, the dynamic drummer will be releasing a follow up single featuring Eddie Willis, original guitarist of Motown's studio recording band, The Funk Brothers. Eddie is the guitarist on almost every Detroit-era Motown hit by folks like Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, The Temptations, The Four Tops, Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, The Contours, Mary Wells, Junior Walker & The All Stars, Edwin Starr, and many more. As with the original CD, 50% of the profits will go to benefit the music programs at the Detroit Public Schools. This is the first in a line of singles, and he plans on branching the project out to other cities as well.
