The Chosen Few DJs, Wayne Williams, Alan King, Terry Hunter, Andre Hatchett, Jesse Saunders, Tony Hatchett and Mike Dunn, are deeply saddened by the loss of our dear friend, Frankie Knuckles. From the time Wayne first heard Frankie play music in 1977, he has been a source of inspiration to us all, a generous and supportive big brother, and a dear friend. With all of his accomplishments and well deserved accolades, we will remember him most for his warm smile and his kind and gentle spirit. The music world-not just House Music-has lost a giant. And we have lost a dear friend and brother. May he rest in eternal peace.
