Sadly, another RIP.
Chips Moman, a producer and songwriter who helped define the Memphis sound in soul music in the 1960s, generated dozens of pop, soul and country hits and helped resuscitate Elvis Presley’s career in the late ’60s, died on Monday in LaGrange, Ga. He was 79.
You need to read the entire obit to see his astounding legacy. Basically, if you like music from the ’60s, the odds are decent Moman had a hand in some of what you enjoy.
He wrote this song with Dan Penn.
