edwin k. starr
The singer known best for his anti-war single (and quite arguably the most well-known anti-war hit song) "War," died on Thursday, April 3rd from a heart attack. Starr, 61, was born in Nashville, Tenn. as Charles Hatcher and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. While "War" was originally a Temptations song, it was considered too controversial for the group and was released as a single for Edwin K. Starr in 1970. He passed away in his home outside of Nottingham, England. For more information, see www.edwinstarr.info.
