Teddy Pendergrass TRULY Hated Him More Than Anyone.. (And Now We Know Why)

Turning off the lights, I find solace in embracing a robust masculine persona. It’s a conviction I hold dear, not merely a facade for public consumption. At this juncture, Teddy Pendergrass was riding the wave of success in early 1982. With five multiplatinum albums, sold-out shows, and ventures into fashion and endorsements, the 31-year-old R&B singer was on the brink of crossing over into mainstream pop.

However, tragedy struck when a late-night car crash left him paralyzed from the chest down. Before delving into that, let’s explore why Teddy had a falling out with his bandmates and, more significantly, with Harold Melvin.

For those unfamiliar, Harold Melvin, born on June 25th, 1939, was a prominent figure in the R&B/soul vocal group Harold Melvin and The Blue Notes. The group’s journey began in Philadelphia in the 1950s as The Charlanes before evolving into The Blue Notes. Teddy Pendergrass, initially the drummer, rose to lead singer in 1970. Their collaboration yielded major hits, including “If You Don’t Know Me By Now” and “I Miss You.”

However, creative and financial differences led to Pendergrass parting ways in 1976. He pursued a solo career, thriving despite the disco trend overshadowing R&B. His albums achieved gold and platinum status, showcasing his versatility, ranging from funky entreaties to tender ballads. Pendergrass, likened to the “black Elvis” by Kenny Gamble, became a sensation, especially among female fans.

In 1982, a car crash changed his life, leaving him paralyzed. Undeterred, Pendergrass made a comeback in 1984 with the album “Love Language,” well-received by fans and critics alike. His journey, marked by ups and downs, left an indelible mark on the R&B scene. Teddy Pendergrass, who passed away in 2010, faced controversies but remains a legendary figure in music history.VIDEO:
