DJ Tony Blackburn: 'Bobby Womack one of greatest soul singers'

Tributes have been paid to American soul singer, songwriter and guitarist, Bobby Womack, who has died at the age of 70.

The cause of death was not announced, but he had suffered from cancer and Alzheimer's disease, and battled with drug addiction.

His hits included It's All Over Now, performed by the Rolling Stones, and Lookin' for Love.

BBC Radio 2 DJ Tony Blackburn described him as a "terrific character" and "a lovely person to know.''

''He was just a very talented man. I don't think he was recognised fully in this country,'' he said.

"He was one of the greatest soul singers of all time".
