Could It Be Finally I'm Turning For Home?
When you think of 70s music, what do you conjure up in your mind? Extended jams? Singer-songwriters? Prog rock? Disco? Punk?
Whatever it is, here's the biggest hit of that decade:
Let's say goodbye to songwriter Joseph Brooks, who has committed suicide:
His death comes two years after Brooks was charged in the sexual assault of about a dozen women, and five months after his son, Christopher Brooks, was charged in the death of his former girlfriend in a separate case.
[He] was found by a friend who was supposed to have lunch with him at his home[....] He was near a helium tank with a tube attached into a dry cleaning bag, and a towel wrapped around his head and neck, according to police. He left a suicide note.
No matter how he went out, he'll be remembered for a song that it inspired millions (and revolted about as many).
