Bobby Womack Dead - Legendary Musician Dies at 70

Bobby Womack has died at the age of 70, according to Rolling Stone.

The cause of death for the legendary singer and songwriter is currently unknown.

Bobby is known for writing numerous hits, including the Rolling Stones’ “It’s All Over Now,” “If You Think You’re Lonely Now,” “That’s the Way I Feel About Cha,” and “Lookin’ for a Love.”

In 2009, Bobby was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

“My very first thought was — I wish I could call Sam Cooke and share this moment with him,” Bobby shared during the induction. “This is just about as exciting to me as being able to see Barack Obama become the first black President of the United States of America! It proves that, if you’re blessed to be able to wait on what’s important to you, a lot of things will change in life.”

We send out our thoughts and condolences to Bobby‘s loved ones during this difficult time.
