We are saddened to learn and report the passing of Go-Go powerhouse Carl “Maxx” Kidd, who succumbed to his battle on March 13, 2017.
Maxx, often referred to as the Berry Gordy of the Go-Go genre, was founder of TTED Records, as well as the inspiration behind the movie “Good To Go” (later changed to “Short Fuse”), which was loosely based on his life. During the early 80’s in Go-Go’s infant stage, he worked with top black broadcasters, record execs, artists and filmmakers around the country in often successful attempts towards building national awareness to DC’s home grown music.
