Leroy Bonner, also known as...

..."Sugarfoot," of the Ohio Players, died at age 69. Sugarfoot?

The Ohio Players had the above hit, “Love Rollercoaster,” which reached No. 1 in 1973, my freshman year in high school. There was an urban myth at the time (to which we all subscribed) that the faint scream that can be heard at about 2:23 was actually the sound of a woman getting stabbed to death in the recording studio next door.

At least I always assumed it was a myth.
