Award-winning hip-hop artist and actor Common has joined us in the fight against preventable blindness.
61 million Americans (more than the populations of California and Florida combined) are at risk of severe vision loss. Yet only half visited an eye doctor in the past year.
Clyde Stubblefield played drums for James Brown for 6 years but his legacy has lasted a lot longer than that. His rhythms have been extensively sampled and particularly his 'Funky Drummer' break helped lay the foundations of Hip Hop, and later jungle and a whole world of electronic music.
RIP Clyde Stubblefield April 18, 1943 – February 18, 2017
