If you don’t know about and you’re an R&B fan, please go there and start reading. I met Bob Davis in the 90s, and he’s been a True Believer all these years. When I was working my way up to making “Only the Strong Survive,” he was incredibly helpful.

Classic R&B has to preserved. Sirius can’t do it alone with Soul Town! So tune in. As for Hendrix, he’s like James Brown. The more you listen to him now, you realize what an utter genius he was. Ernie Isley is going to talk about how Hendrix’s sound took the IB’s from “This Old Heart of Mine” to “Who’s That Lady.” I can’t wait!
