Edwin Starr died today at his home in Nottingham.
One of the funniest scenes from the movie Rush Hour (1998), starring Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker was when Det. Carter, (Tucker), teaches Chf Insp. Lee (Chan) how to sing Edwin Starr’s 1970 Motown classic “War” which, as anyone who’s ever heard it knows, asked “What is it good for?”,
To which the answer was “absolutely nothing”.
