Happy Birthday to the Walrus of Love

“Dubbed the Walrus of Love, he enjoyed a virtual monopoly on pillow talk disco… His singularly deep voice caused his mother to scream with fright when it first broke at the age of 14.”

So said the BBC about Barry White in its 2003 obituary. His voice was so seductive it could help sharks mate.

White would have turned 64 today. Happy birthday, big fellah, wherever you are.
