    Quote for the Day:

    " I watched people; I used to travel with the rock-and-roll shows. I watched stars. I got to the point where I had 'Turn This Mutha Out' and it frightened me. I had a big record.

    I was opening for the Jackson 5, but the saddest point in my life was being a star and being in the dressing room by myself.

    And then the most sad thing was that the band was on the bandstand, and I had to wait for the police to escort me to the stage. I'm by myself. I'm used to being with the band. I was a sad dude, man."

    Quote for the Day:


    "We had no idea what he (Jackie Wilson) was going to do, but he called Berry, and then he said "You guys go back to Hitsville. Berry wants to hear you again."

    We hopped in the car and, man, we sped down the street.

    When we got out of the car, we kind of cool walked real slow like we were bad dudes walking to the studio.

    We sang the same three songs that we had sung for Berry a couple of hours earlier, and he said "You guys sound great! Come back tomorrow and we'll sign a contract."

    Quote for the Day:

    "And then, I did a show with Jerry Robbins.

    It was his first show. And it was my first starring show.

    I had no business being there. And he had no business directing it. He never directed anything before.

    So, I was leaning against a wall, and Maureen Stapleton was with me.

    And Jerry said, "Catherine, get your hand off the proscenium."

    And I said "Maureen, what the hell is the proscenium?"

    That tells you I shouldn't have been in that show. Although, I stopped the show twice.

    The thing I'm proudest of - I never made a penny in any other business. And that's for eighty years. I did my last show at eighty-eight."

    I said that we had to look no more.

    Everyone agreed, and the rest is history."

    I'm 74 today! It is also Baruch Spinoza's, Oscar Robertson's, Howard Duff's, Henri de Toulouse L'Autrec's, and Scott Joplin's birthday today. I'm glad to have made it another year, and avoided the virus. Maybe, with good luck, by the end of February, I can get my second vaccination, and return to Europe.

    Happy Birthday Robb!
    You got the first vaccination? Or are you hoping??

    Only hoping I can get the first shot by the beginning of February, and the second by the end of February. Then, I'll have to wait another 10 days to 2 weeks to make sure the immunity is kicked in, and then, I can return to Europe.

    "Diana Ross been dressin' like me for years, y'all know that!" - from Little Richard's induction of The Supremes into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame

    And every time I hear Diana sing these lines from 'Without A Song' in concert...

    "I got my trouble and woe
    but, sure as I know, the Jordan will roll;
    I'll get along, as long as a song, is strong in my soul..."

    ...I hear the enunciation and phrasing of Ms Della Reese, as her vocal inspiration....and who could blame her for that?

    Quote for the Day:

    "People think I'm ancient, or near death, darlin'!

    They can't believe I'm walking.

    I just go along with it.

    One time when I was playing in Branson, I'm not kidding you, we had people in the lobby buying tickets to the show asking if I was still alive.

    My name was on the ticket. Who did they think they were going to see?

    I just thought '"Oh lord in heaven!"

    Quote for the Day:

    "It was a glorious time and the best education I've had.

    We travelled to all nations, heard all tongues, and even hobnobbed with royalty.

    People don't know where I am, and what I'm doing. I haven't lived a fairy tale lifestyle for many years. I've been up and down - a rollercoaster it's been.

    It ('Dreamgirls') was really our story, but it's not true.

    Little things were true, but the true story has not been told yet."
