Carolina Girls: Sweeter than Candy, Hotter than Heat

We are saddened to hear of the death of General Johnson from Chairmen of the Board.  One of the preeminent figures in Beach Music, General Johnson was an amazing songwriter and performer. 

I don't think I have ever attended a wedding where Chairmen of the Board songs weren't performed- their songs would make anyone in the world want to get up and dance.
If you don't know about shagging or thing it's something other than dancing, you need to watch the movie Shag.

General Johnson will certainly be missed, but we will never forget his songs!
