Nice article. As a Motown writer/producer, Johnny Bristol may not have had the visibility of H-D-H, Smokey, or Norman Whitfield, but his talent speaks for itself. He will be missed.

Good article on Johnny ... He kept the music going until the end. He will be missed.

I'm glad you talked to Johnny for the book project. Too many stories die with guys like him.
Several people who processed the obit (copy editors etc.) read it and said "wow!" He worked on all my favorite songs!" He was a triple threat talent.

I was lucky and felt blessed ..he and I would email each other once in a while...He is my favorite of the Motown Producers and song writers....and then his voice....(goodness)
I hope the gospel work gets heard.....A true artist and a great talent.....

Vickie: How was Johnny when you interviewed him for the Tammi book project. I mean, what did he say about Tammi when you interviewed him?
Sue: Great article. I sorta knew that Johnny married Iris Gordy from part 1 of "Stubborn Kind of Fellow: Remembering Marvin Gaye". I never knew he was married twice or how many children he had. Nice article.

I am shocked and surprised that ANOTHER legend has left us. He was a superb producer, singer and songwriter that has the music that will transcend many styles and changes. The most memorable for me were his production skills for The Supremes' swan song with Diana Ross, "Someday We'll Be Together" and his huge solo hit "Hang On In There Baby" celebrating its 30 years of airplay this year. He will be sorely missed by his former Motown colleagues, family, friends and us fans alike. May you rest in peace and keep the music going in that great big concert hall in the sky, Mr. Johnny Bristol.

Yes, time marches on. Johnny may not have been as well known as HDH, Norman or Smokey, but he produced some of the greatest music to come out of Motown. He will be missed.

BAN...you must have read my mind - or my post from 3/23/04. LOL.

Was anyone here fortunate enought to attend Johnnys' Funeral Service?
He was at Swansons Funeral Home on W. McNichols.
He was there for one day for viewing, and it was all over
