One of my favorite songs on my syndicated Sunday oldies show is Tower of Power’s “You’re Still A Young Man”. It’s a great love song about a young man trying to convince an older woman that a relationship between them can work. It features Tower of Power’s iconic horn section and lead vocalist, Rick Stevens.
Mr. Stevens recently lost his battle with cancer, which he was diagnosed with three months ago according to his son and manager Clarence Maloney.
Stevens joined TOP in 1969 and appeared on the band’s first two albums (East Bay Grease & Bump City) including the band’s most well known songs, “You’re Still A Young Man”.
