Sorry to hear this news. Tremendous loss to historians and to those just beginning to learn. Every one of his books grace my library, and in most cases, represent the definitive biographies of those subjects - in my ever so humble opinion. As a narrator, he is hard to equal. Anyone interested in history owes him a great debt...

RIP Lamont Dozier, part of Motown Records' legendary Holland-Dozier-Holland songwriting team, dead at 81. Not many people have had their hands in as many hits as him. A true legend. Too bad Motown had a bad habit of financially screwing their artists.
