Sadly, this past weekend I lost a good friend. Richie Ingui, who was the other half of the group “The Soul Survivors” passed as this weekend. A lot of people may not know of this group (mainly because they only had one hit, but that hit was a great one). The song they are well known for is entitled “Expressway to your heart.” This song was released in 1967 and it became a number 1 hit. This year marks the 50th anniversary of this song. The two guys who made up the soul survivors are brothers, I last played for them two months ago in November at the Kimmel Center here in Philadelphia. These guys were always fun to perform for and they were great guys. Here is a segment we did with them years ago at an outside concert here at Sugarhouse Casinos. Of course, I am the one wearing black and playing the red bass guitar: Richie is the taller brother with less hair in the video.
For those of you who may not recognize their big hit “Expressway to your heart” just check out the link below. These guys were awesome together and my condolences go out to their families and their awesome band. Thank you for checking out my Daily Thought and as always I wish you the very best that life has to offer.
