David Maxwell - Rest In Peace

Pianist extraordinaire David Maxwell, one of the nicest artists in all of music, has passed away after a long illness.

Mr. Maxwell performed on three Bobby Hebb tracks in September of 2013 at Wellspring Studio, near Maxwell's home in Concord, Mass. The three songs with Maxwell's artistry are "Proud Soul Heritage" and "Love You" - written by Bobby Hebb and performed by his daughter, Kitoto Von Hebb, and "Got My Mojo Workin."

Rest in peace, friend David. We at Bobby Hebb.com are saddened and shocked by your passing.
