Two sad passings this week in the world of Blues & R&B:

 Teenie Hodges pictured above with Jackie Don Loe

TEENIE HODGES (11/16/46 - 6/22/14) - Teenie was a guitarist and songwriter in the Hi Rhythm Section who co-wrote may of Al Green's hits, including "Take Me To The River" and "Love And Happiness", as well as songs for Ann Peebles and Syl Johnson in the 1970's. I was lucky enough to have what might have been the last radio interview with Teenie at KNON earlier this year. Tennie died of complications from emphysema.

Lee McBee pictured above with Mike Morgan

LEE MCBEE (3/23/51 - 6/24/14) - Lee had a long and varied career as a harmonica player and vocalist. Most people here in Dallas will remember him for his 12 years playing with Mike Morgan and the Crawl. He was inducted into the Kansas Music Hall of Fame in 2009. Lee died suddenly yesterday after going swimming with his wife. No further details are known at this time.
