I’ve known David Gest for decades but we only recently renewed our friendship in 2014. He had a love of R&B and Soul music like few industry promoters, having grown up next door the the Jackson family. He was an industry icon and will be missed by a great many artists as well as fans. He always put on a great show and treated the acts well. He was funny, quirky, kind, loved licorice, and liked to tell dirty jokes.

On my last tour with him, we shared a dressing room together. When the tour was ending he said “You’re going to miss me.” and I laughed. A few weeks later we were chatting on the phone and I told him he was right. I did miss him.

While the “Memphis in May” show on May 6th will go on; it will now be a memorial show. There will be many tears backstageā€¦

Rest well my friend. I will miss you.
