    Reet, Frankie Knuckles did not contribute to house music, arguably Frankie Knuckles WAS house music.

    Sometimes I give my respects in a half hearted manner however this time I have actually lost somebody I grew up loving although not actually meeting him (closest got was to meet Satoshi Tomiie in New York). A very sad day and my thoughts go out to his partner, friends and colleagues.

    Frankie, thank you for everything you did for me and rest in peace.

    Always loved the classic remix vocal version of tears.

    Sad

    It is very sad indeed to hear that Frankie Knuckles has passed away. I only spoke to him on Facebook but three weeks ago about the session keyboards he played on the Sterling Void remix of my track "Chasing Rainbows" and I was looking forward to working with him again like an excited kid at Christmas.

    When you spoke to Frankie about music you knew that he really did love it. He told me he had just done Chaka Khan's new album and I wanted A Knuckles mix of something I had written for Sarah Lennon (Ultracynic) just because I was a fan and he said he would do me the mix for just $500.00 which is nothing at all.

    Truly sad. The loss of a real gentleman
