Feeling ashamed and disappointed that i didnt make the time to see him. I heard he was spectacular live.

Remember the wonderful opening night of the 2013 Sydney Festival
It was a Daptone Records Revue - and it was special RIP Mr Bradley

Very sad news indeed.

He was fantastic at Bluesfest.

Just watched a movie last week of his belated rise to some sort of recognition.

I saw Charles Bradley and his band with my sister Valerie in 2013 for free as part of the Canberra Enlighten Festival. So lucky and a great Gig. RIP Charles.

Was lucky enough to sit at an adjoining table to Charles at a marickville Vietnamese restaurant. A sad loss.
