Tyrone Davis Dies

Veteran R&B singer Tyrone Davis, best known for the hits “Turn Back The Hands Of Time” and “Can I Change My Mind,” died February 9th at a Chicago-area hospital.

Davis, 66, was hospitalized in September after suffering a stroke that left him in a coma.

He worked as a chauffeur for bluesman Freddie King in the 1950s and got to know blues stars including Bobby “Blue” Bland and Little Milton before his own career took off.

He recorded dozens of hits through the 1980s and continued to tour regularly through last year.

Davis’ most recent album, Legendary Hall of Famer, was released last October shortly after his stroke, according to the New York Times.
