    Hello to anyone who will help me get in touch with Percy Sledge. Thank you in advance. In about 1977-78,while a TN State Trooper,I met Percy after a concert in Knoxville, TN. I did not attend due to being on duty and having a bite to eat at a Howard Johnson.s Restaurant. Long story made short and near arrest for him and his crew, Percy spent the night with me and another friend of mine at my house. I drove Percy to his next engagement in Greenville or Johnson City TN. He even sang during the trip and I had to think “who can say that I had Percy sing to me for over an hour while driving in my car”? We lost contact over the years due to our differing roads. Anyone, Please help as I just one more time pray to link up with Percy even if by phone/letter/ in person. Semper Fidelis, Hal Davis
