J.R. Cobb, founder of Classics IV and Atlanta Rhythm Section has died

J.R. Cobb, who founded the hitmaking bands The Classics Four and Atlanta Rhythm Section, died Saturday after a heart attack. He was 75.

The Birmingham, Alabama native backed Dennis Yost on guitar and co-wrote the '60s pop favorites "Spooky," "Stormy" and "Traces." A decade later, he joined Classics Four producer Buddy Buie and several former Roy Orbison tour band members in ARS. Fronted by vocalist Ronnie Hammond, they had bluesy Southern rock hits such as "So Into You," "Imaginary Lover" and a Top 20 remake of "Spooky." Cobb quit the band in 1986.
