Though the masses might only remember the late Donny Hathaway as Roberta Flack's soulful partner on "The Closer I Get To You," "You've Got A Friend" and "Where Is The Love," the box set Never My Love: The Anthology makes the case that this previous Gospel singer also was one of the great voices of R&B.

Marcel Hidalgo

It wasn't just the guitar that was loud, so was Chester's voice. And it got louder as his living conditions got tougher. His massive body, weighting up to 300 pounds, both scared and impressed people. Howlin' Wolf, the name his grandfather gave him, would become an important figure.

I'm 29. No, seriously. And in September I'll be 30. This is supposed to be a "double death" for me as both a musician and a gay man, but unlike so many who turn 29 over and over again (or worse, 18), I plan to lean into this.
