RIP Dobie Gray


Singer Dobie Gray, who had an enormous hit with 1973's "Drift Away," has died at age 71.

"Drift Away" has been covered by everyone from Elvis Presley to Ray Charles. The Rolling Stones reportedly recorded it, but never released their version, and rumors that the Beatles recorded the tune are false (they had already broken up by the time Gray recorded it). In 2003, Gray himself sang the final verse on Uncle Kracker's version of the song, which spent a record-setting 28 weeks atop the U.S. adult contemporary chart.

Listen to Gray's original version below.

And a couple of covers from our boys...

RIP Dobie.
