Shake You Down
New York-born singer/songwriter Gregory Abbott only hit the top 40 once in his career, but that one hit went all the way to the top. Exactly 25 years ago today, Abbott’s “Shake You Down” hit number one for one week on Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart.
Abbott, whose mother hails from Venezuela and whose father hails from Antigua, holds a Masters degree and has taught English at the University of California, Berkeley. He also continues to make music, and he released his latest album, Drop Your Mask, this past September.
