    Unhappy RIP "War! What is it good for? Absolutely nuthin'!"

    This is not intended as a political thread. Please do not turn it into one.

    Edwin Starr, who made those lines famous during the Vietnam War, has passed away at the age of 61.

    Regardless of your thoughts on Vietnam, the current war, or any conflict in between, this was and remains a darn good song by an incredible talented performer. A moment of silence, please.
    That's my jacket!

    And the original title to "War and Peace" according to Elaine Benes.

    Poor Mr. Starr.

    Sad to know that the world has just a little less soul today than it did before.
