    Greetings peops, I learned recently that Gene McFadden, the last remaining member of the singing duo McFadden & Whitehead had passed on... I have no details beyond that... I don't know the cause of death, I don't know how olde he was, or how many family members our brother leaves behind, but I do know that he and John Whitehead of Philadelphia International Records penned one of the great and meaningful songs of my young life, when in 1978, Aint No Stopping Us Now hit the airwaves... The legendary DJ Frankie Chief Rocka Crocker played this 9 minute plus song 11 consecutive times over the airwaves of WBLS, thus making it instantly a monster hit in the New York area... Soon, it would be a hit all across the United States, and the world... Just wanna say, THANKS GENE.... Rest in Eternal Peace....

    I know you know someone who has a negative vibe
    and if you tryna make it, they always push you aside
    They really don't have no where to go
    Ask 'em where their goin, they don't know
    But we wont let nothing hold us back
    we're getting ourselves together
    we're polishing up our act yeah...
    Aint No Stopping Us Now, We're on the move
    We really, really got da groove...



    Peace!
    Isaiah
