One of the great producers and songwriters of the Motown empire. Often working with Barrett Strong of "Money" fame, he wrote and produced such timeless hits as "I Heard It Through The Grapevine", "War", and most of the late 60s-early 70s Temptations hits. Some truly great records.
So U2 finish mixing their album in late June, and all is well with the world. A couple of weeks ago, the band is on a photo shoot in France, and the Edge happens to bring along the CD to listen to in a portable player.
