Sam and DaveIn 2005, Samuel David Moore finally spoke about his relationship with David Prater. Both American Soul and Rhythm & Blues (R&B) singers were members of the soul vocal duo Sam & Dave. They recorded and performed together from 1961 through 1981; Sam Moore was the tenor (higher) vocalist and Dave Prater was the baritone/tenor (lower) vocalist. Along with “Wicked” Wilson Pickett the leaders of the second tier of Atlantic/Stax’s mighty ‘60s soul roster (first division: Aretha Franklin and Otis Redding), the team of Sam Moore and Dave Prater produced some of the sweatiest, grittiest soul music ever waxed. Both were also serious drug addicts
An increasingly volatile personal relationship between the two performers, Sam reached a breaking point in their personal relationship in 1968. After Dave shot his soon-to-be second wife in 1970, Sam told Dave „I’ll sing with you, but I shall never speak to you again.” Dave was killed in a freak car accident in 1988, in which his body shot into a tree, severing his head from his torso. Later, Sam stated that „He didn’t think of Dave, didn’t think of him at all”.In his Christmas broadcast, he admitted this was a mistake. Their sweatiest, grittiest soul music was the result of their harsh life experiences, and now, as an old man, he could find it in his heart to forgive him.
