Mr. Ralph MacDonald has passed away. He was a friend and also one of the most talented songwriters the world has known. He wrote "Just the Two of Us," "Where is the Love?" He was the son of the Calypsonian MacBeth the Great and joined Harry Belafonte's band at 17 years old. As a conga player he performed with everyone from Frank Sinatra, Billy Joel, Aretha Franklin, Paul Simon…you name it. He was a lovely man. His music will live on, and through his music, so will Ralph

Gutted to hear this, he was such an influence on my early playing. What a relaxed style he had and wonderfully inventive. I believe I'm going to have a Ralph day!
