Percy Sledge, probably best remembered for his 1966 evergreen Soul hit, ‘When A Man Loves A Woman’, has died. Percy was 73, and had been suffering from liver cancer. ‘When A Man Loves A Woman’ became a Top 40 hit record. The hit overshadowed, somewhat unfairly, a fine career spanning the late Sixties and early Seventies. Born in Leighton, Alabama, his early career covered several roles (in farming and in health), before becoming a touring vocalist in the early Sixties.
