Comments: I met the great man when he played the Flamingo Cleethorpes in the early 90s. No-one knew that it was the last night that the Flam was open. Edwin appeared on stage without his backing band and apologised to the audience. The Flamingo couldn't afford to pay fir hus band but rather than disappoint the fans he came on his own. After two songs with a backing track Edwin stopped the show, turned off his backing tape and told us all that we were his backing band. We all sang the songs with him. He was brilliant. I saw him as support for Jr Walker and Marvin Gaye and he beat them both into a cocked hat. Best live artist ever.

Comments: We saw Edwin Starr at "Oil Can Harry's" in Vancouver in 1974(?). WIKI On line it says he moved to England in 1973, this doesn't make sense? Please clarify, We've never forgotten the performance, he had a back-up band from L.A.. His white Rolls or Bently (?) was parked out front with "Star 1" license plates. I was friends with the owners and had the best seat in the house and we danced all night. We also saw the last show that Ike & Tina Turner did in Vancouver at the "Cave" supper club.

Comments: You can never have too much Edwin Starr! Such a great singer. That raw, soulful voice, especially combined with the smooth Motown sound! Standout songs for me: Ric-Tic Years: "Back Street", "Headline News" & "Stop Her On Sight (S.O.S.)" Motown Years: "War" (of course), "Twenty-Five Miles" & "My Weakness Is You" Later Years: "Contact" & "H.A.P.P.Y. Radio"

I am proud to have seen him live, and also proud that although there are all genres of music that the UK is the centre of music. And he said on stage that he loved London and England, now the UK. But in my opinion soul and Mowtown was U.S made. RIP Edwin. Met you once and loved it.

Radio" are two others that come to mind. It's hard to believe it's been almost ten years since he's left us, but his music lives on forever. I see Edwin died in Nottingham, UK. I wonder what brought him to decide to live there? He picked a great place to live! Anyway, I'll always think of Edwin's soulful, powerful vocal delivery & those great hit singles! Another great artist gone too soon. R.I.P., Edwin. --D.M.H.

He was happy and proud. Since then it has been covered by many – but none so great as Edwin. A special person with a special perspective on the world, the people around him and where he fit in the universe.

Comments: Just relived a lot of Edwins songs as he was the featured artist on Dave Brown's Motown show on Smooth Radio. I was sure that Dave got it wrong about the date of Edwins passing, he said 1993? which was clearly 10 years out. As a 16 year old in 1970 Edwin had a massive influence on me and my music tastes, SOS stop her on sight got played countless times from the Motown Chartbusters Vol 3 album, but more than anything 25 Miles left a massive impression on me, especially after seeing him live in Chester in 1971, I was totally blown away by that show as it was only a small club 'Quaintways' and we were all stood on chairs in a semi circle quite close to the 'all on one level stage', fabulous night. More recently I have got back into scooters and soul and realise what a fantastic artist Edwin was, he did so much for soul fans and soul lovers in the UK as he spent most of his time over here. RIP Edwin you will always be missed and we will always keep the faith by playing and dancing to your wonderful songs.

Comments: stop her on sight and headline news were two songs that as a 16 year old made me a life long fan of edwin starr. i saw him live twice and as far as soul music is concerned he was one of the best live acts i have ever seen. the opening to stop her on sight still sends a tingle down my spine. im just glad he was recognised for what he was . a truly great artist . love you edwin

Comments: Happy birthday Edwin, It would have been a big one as well 70, I can remember when you were 60 and you said the age did not bother you as you were here and a lot of your friends had not made it. How I wish you were here for this one. love Mary xxx
