    To be fair, I think the reason Ike's mistreatment of women gets looked more than James Brown's, for instance, is because of the woman Ike mistreated was another famous singer (one he helped to make...

    I don't know if you or anyone on Soulful Detroit ever got a chance to read about a friend's thoughts on Ike. His name is Steve Leigh and he was a keyboardist for the I&TT Revue off and on for seven...

    I guess the producers of TV One feel, like the O'Jays, that Otis don't get enough credit. *weird shrug*

    That one confused me too.
  4. Which is why I don't trip anymore when people...

    Which is why I don't trip anymore when people bring all this stuff about Diana because a lot of the Motown acts had different lives off camera. It was like who wasn't feuding at the time, who wasn't...

    I don't think she's money hungry at all. She just wanted to give her two cents about how life with Marvin was like...

    I was wondering what show MW was doing when I originally saw the clip but no one provided a name then. Thanks!

    I got a quick ? though: was Mary doing ALL the vocals in the studio version? I only...

    Lol when was Tony born? No one has seemed to answer that question. He always changes his story. He said he was 12 when he met Florence apparently. I remember going "what superstar (which Florence...

    Me personally I think Florence and Mary NEVER wanted to be the lead singer. Florence was willing to go on with the group if Diana left when she was supposed to have left (c. 1966) but Florence...

    ^ Yeah there are people who have horror stories of seeing Tina all bruised up during performances. It'll be interesting to see what spin Unsung gives this.

    ^ Syreeta would've been a tragedy. She was good but not that good... I'm glad Mary stuck to her guns to keep Jean if the story of Berry wanting Syreeta in was true.

    If I'm not mistaken, I saw a clip of them singing People at the Orient, and I think Mary did add her own lead to People... all three of them were singing it at that point. People was never fully...

    When the Supremes signed with Motown in January 1961 (months before the Marvelettes joined), Berry Gordy hadn't yet made the announcement that Diana would be the lead vocalist. That happened in late...

  17. June 3rd: Get ready for an Ike Turner "Unsung"...

    Since Ike Turner's history can't be fully condensed in one hour, TV-One's "Unsung" will try to do it (plus commercials) on June 3rd.

    I have my issues with Ike but I want to tune into this. Ike's...

    ^ Bonnie probably has financial struggles while Ruth and Anita don't. That's what I assume, anyway. Don't forget Bonnie has been in the press (or was) for legal troubles and that usually costs money.

    So David Ritz's biography finally solved the mystery about who fathered who and it wasn't C. L. Franklin (whew).

    ^ Well the public don't care about details, their only thing is the music. Not everyone is gonna be a Motown buff. If you know who Mary and Florence are, they're not that unknown. Berry Gordy had it...

    ^ Well there's always multiple sides to why Mary's post-Motown records weren't played. It wasn't just due to Motown, she went to a label that didn't really know how to promote her either. But Mickey...
