While I wish it was an April’s Fool Joke, I’ve seen this reported on legit web sites so it unfortunately seems to be true—- the legendary Frankie Knuckles has passed away.
Often called “The Godfather of House”, Knuckles leaves behind an impressive and forward thinking catalogue of club classics. Dance music, and house in particular, is often criticized for being soulless and mechanical but the 80’s masterpiece “Tears”, and my all time Frankie fave, soundly disproves that notion and renders what is being called “house music” by the likes of Skrillex and David Guetta tragic and moot.
Rest in peace, Mr. Knuckles.
