John Gary Williams

Real Name:John Gary Williams

Memphis-born singer and songwriter (Died 28th May 2019, aged 73)
A proudly and fiercely independent figure, Williams' shot at stardom was interrupted when he and William Brown, a fellow Mad Lad, were drafted into the military in 1966. After returning from Vietnam in 1968, he rejoined the group, and recorded a solo album for Stax in 1973. The Mad Lads reunited in 1984, and continued to perform off and on for many years.
He had previously joined the Invaders, a Memphis "militant" group inspired by the Black Panthers that was especially active in the late 1960s, during the sanitation strike that brought Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to Memphis.

In Groups:The Mad Lads
