R.I.P. Uriel Jones - Motown drummer

One of Motown's Funk Brothers, drummer Uriel Jones (pictured above with Annie Jamerson, left, and Rosalind Holmes of the Vandellas), passed away in Detroit Tuesday. His muscular, hard-rocking drum style was an integral part of the Motown sound on classics such as "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell and "Ain't Too Proud to Beg" and "Cloud Nine" by the Temptations. Jones was 74.
