Paul Davis, 1948-2008

Paul Davis, pop singer best known for his 1977-78 hit "I Go Crazy," which at the time spent the most weeks - 40 - in the Hot 100 of any song in the history of the Billboard charts, dead at the age of 60. Davis' other hits include "Sweet Life," "Cool Night," and "'65 Love Affair," most of which haunted lite-rock radio stations throughout the 1980s and 1990s.

Now I don't mean to alarm you, but Paul Davis was a native of Meridian, Mississippi. As was Al Wilson, who died a few days ago.

If I were Steve Forbert, I'd be getting a complete physical, including bloodwork and a stress test, right about now.
