As the keyboardist for the legendary Motown studio hit machine the Funk Brothers, Johnny Griffith was instrumental in realizing some of the most memorable tunes of the Motown era. Born in Detroit, MI, in 1936, the classically trained musician performed with such luminaries as Dinah Washington and Aretha Franklin before joining the Funk Brothers. Contributing to such hits as the Supremes' "Stop in the Name of Love" and Marvin Gaye's "Heard it Through the Grapevine," Griffith's formidable skills as a keyboard player stood out even among the many talented musicians with whom he played over the years. One of the subjects of the 2002 documentary Standing in the Shadows of Motown, Griffith sadly died of a heart attack just ten hours before the film's Detroit premier on November 10, 2002. He was 66.
