Influential keyboardist and producer Walter “Junie” Morrison has died at 62.
As a founder member of funk band Ohio Players and a key part of Parliament-Funkadelic, Walter “Junie” Morrison is widely regarded as one of funk’s crucial figures. Today, Okayplayer reports that Morrison has died at 62 years of age.
He was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame back in 1997, and leaves behind him a legacy that’s hard to fathom. Who else can claim to have contributed to One Nation Under a Groove and Motor Booty Affair and also produce for Soul II Soul in the 1990s.
