    He had a rough relationship with Berry...who fired/rehired him several times.
    There was a story that BG fired him..Andre told BG he couldn't.
    .because he'd been fired the week before.

    He was a writer and producer of "Let Me Hear You Say (I Love You)", one of the tracks I was blown away by on the expanded Where Did Our Love Go album.

    A life dedicated to making music that lots of people appreciate is a well-spent one, and we can continue enjoying his legacy. My favorite has always been ''Rosa Lee (Stay Off The Bell)! (Miracle 4, 1961) Thank you, Mr. Williams!
