It has not been a great couple of weeks for legendary Detroit vocalists. We lost Mr. Mayer yesterday due to complications from the stroke he suffered earlier this year. As someone who remained a vital part of the local music community right up until he was struck, this news is very sad indeed. Not to sound corny, but as long as there are fans who love classic doo wop music, as well as fans of colorful characters, and as long there's a Christmas and Santa Claus, Nathaniel Mayer will live on for a very long time. Rest in peace to a classy dude.
