R.I.P. Leroy Bonner aka Sugarfoot (from The Ohio Players)

Guitarist and vocalist Leroy “Sugarfoot” Bonner was a member of Ohio Players dating back to 1964, when the band was known as the Ohio Untouchables.

Bonner co-wrote and played on some of the biggest funk hits of the ‘70s, including “Skin Tight,” “Fire,” “I Want to Be Free,” “Love Rollercoaster,” and “Fopp.” In the ‘80s, he briefly went solo; signed to Warner Bros., he released the 1985 album Sugar Kiss with backing from Zapp, along with production from Zapp’s Roger Troutman. Though it deserved to do as well as The New Zapp IV U, released the same year, it lacked a knock-out song like “Computer Love” and did not chart. Bonner continued to tour with the Ohio Players and even led a version of the band during the 2000s.

A LEGEND .. no words are needed for what the OHIO PLAYERS gave the music industry & Hip Hop, your sound will be missed & your legacy & music will continue to live on ...
