Nick Ashford RIP

From Bob Corritore
  • RIP Nick Ashford - May 4, 1941 to August 22, 2011. It seems to be a rough period for songwriters as we report the passing of Nick Ashford who, along with wife Valerie Simpson co-wrote many elegant pop-soul hits for Motown including "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," "You're All I Need To Get By," and "Reach Out and Touch Somebody's Hand." He and his wife Valerie, billed as Ashford & Simpson, had success as artists in their own right as well as penning classics cut by Diana Ross, and Marvin Gaye. Nick Ashford died from throat cancer on Monday, August 22. To hear "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" click here
