The Rolling Stones have paid tribute to the late soul singer Bobby Womack.

The band posted a message on their official website in response to the news that Womack had died on Thursday (June 27), aged 70.

The Rolling Stones released a UK No 1 cover of the song “It’s All Over Now” in 1964, which was originally recorded by Womack’s group, The Valentinos.

“Bobby Womack was a huge influence on us,” said the message. “He was a true pioneer of soul and R&B, whose voice and songwriting touched millions. On stage, his presence was formidable. His talents put him up there with the greats. We will remember him, first and foremost, as a friend.”




Damon Albarn, who coaxed Womack back into the musical spotlight after a long break by asking him to record a track for the third Gorillaz album ‘Plastic Beach’, paid tribute to the singer yesterday (June 28), tweeting “I will see my brother in church.”
