Music Legend Bohannon Dead at 78

Hamilton Bohannon, who played drums for Stevie Wonder and was a bandleader for Motown Records, has died. He was 78.

The Georgia native and his group Bohannon & The Motown Sound toured with several stars, including Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson, Diana Ross and the Supremes, the Temptations and the Four Tops, before he became a solo act in 1973.

Bohannan eventually became a solo act, having released his debut album “Stop & Go” in 1973.

In the 1980s, he made 18 more records and was popular in the ’70s disco era, but only one of his songs, “Good Stompin Music,” reached the Billboard Hot 100 in 1975.

Bohannon is survived by son Bohannon II and daughter April.
