Philly soul singer, composer, and producer Gene McFadden remains most widely known for the smash “Ain’t Simply no Stoppin’ Us Today,” the disco-era traditional he documented with longtime collaborator John Whitehead. Delivered in 1946, McFadden was raised within the same impoverished Philadelphia community as Whitehead. Whilst in senior high school, they shaped the Epsilons with Whitehead’s cousin Ronald Lowry (afterwards an associate of Frankie Beverley’s Maze) and Allen Beatty, and in 1966, Otis Redding noticed the group perform and employed them as his support vocalists. The Epsilons also supported Arthur Conley on his traditional “Sweet Spirit Music,” but pursuing Redding’s tragic loss of life the group’s fortunes waned, and following the 1968 Stax one “The Echo” they dissolved. McFadden and Whitehead came back to Philadelphia, developing Talk of the city with Adam Knight and Lloyd Parks. Two singles, “Little Your Lovin'” and “AVOID BEING Therefore Mean,” made an appearance on North Bay in 1971; neither was popular, and Whitehead visited function in the mailroom from the fledgling Philadelphia International Information. He and McFadden also started writing songs, ultimately convincing Philadelphia International bosses Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff to hear their structure “Back again Stabbers.” Documented with the O’Jays in 1972, “Back again Stabbers” would confirm the label’s initial gold record along with a landmark within the advancement of Philly spirit. As authors and manufacturers, McFadden and Whitehead would continue to rating 22 gold information, two platinum albums, and two Grammy nominations on the following six years. As well as the O’Jays’ follow-up smash “For the Like of Cash,” their strikes included Harold Melvin & the Blue Records’ “AWAKEN Everybody” and “Where ARE My Close friends,” alongside Archie Bell & the Drells’ “DON’T ALLOW Like ENABLE YOU TO GET Down.” The duo also revived their Chat of the city project, liberating the singles “Super Groover (FOREVER Mover),” “Bumpin’ Boogie,” and “I AM SORRY” around the Philadelphia International spinoffs Gamble and TSOP. In 1978 they came back to the studio room as just McFadden & Whitehead, documenting “Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Right now” in a single take. Whitehead actually made up a lot of the lyrics at that moment. The solitary was a worldwide blockbuster, topping the Billboard R&B graphs and later learning to be a Philadelphia sports activities anthem, however the duo demonstrated struggling to generate an effective follow-up, with “I Noticed It inside a Like Track” and “I AM Pushed Apart” hardly scraping the graphs. After 1982’s Movin’ On, McFadden & Whitehead proceeded to go their separate methods, reuniting within the 1990s to execute at corporate occasions and disco nostalgia displays. ON, MAY 11, 2004, Whitehead was shot to loss of life while fixing his car on the Philadelphia road. The killing continues to be unsolved, and apparently took an intense toll on McFadden, who was simply already fighting the liver organ and lung malignancy that stated his existence on January 27, 2006.
