Remembering Jimy Rogers, Soul Man

"James 'Jimy' Rogers, 63, a raspy-voiced singer who belted out soulful music as lead vocalist of the Mauds, died of cancer Saturday, Dec. 4, at Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville, according to friends," the Tribune reports.

"In 1967, Mr. Rogers and the Mauds gained fame when Mercury Records nationally released their first single, 'Hold On,' a cover of a classic originally recorded by legendary soul duo Sam & Dave.

"The next year, they scored another hit with 'Soul Drippin',' backed by the horn section of a new band called the Chicago Transit Authority - soon to be renamed Chicago.

"In 1971, the Mauds broke up. But, in 2000, Mr. Rogers revived the band with new musicians and started playing at venues in the northwest suburbs. In recent years, he also performed with the band Blue Road at nightclubs and the Chicago Blues Festival."


"A memorial concert celebration and benefit will be held Friday, Dec. 10, 2010 with Blue Road and special guests from 8:30 - midnight at at Gabe's Backstage Lounge, 214 Green Bay Rd. Highwood IL 60040," reports.
