RIP Screaming Eagle of Soul

In recent years, there haven't been many songs that have knocked me for six in quite the same way as the cover of Black Sabbath's 'Changes' by Charles Bradley, who has succumbed to cancer at the age of 68. He had beaten the disease once and had even went so far as to announce new tour dates - but it then transpired that it had spread from his stomach to his liver.

Bradley had an incredible voice, lived an incredible life (as this Guardian obituary underlines) and was, by all accounts, an incredible man.
