Charles Pitts was a lovely man with a smile on his face every time I saw him. I was really sad to hear that he had been diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer and then passed away yesterday. Funny thing, I knew he was a musician the entire time I knew him, I just didn’t know just how much of a mark he left in music history until much later after I’d known him!
This is the guy that played the guitar on the theme song from the movie Shaft!
RIP Charles! It was wonderful knowing you!
