    Quote for the Day:


    "But when I would perform, it was all the whistles, it was the lights, it was the fame.

    My personality is fairly easygoing. So if somebody came to see us, I always felt a responsibility to sign autographs.

    But there was this other side where I thought "I'm signing autographs, and people think that this is it."

    People want to know you. They want to touch you.

    And you're giving yourself because you think "You like me, so I feel like I need to be what I need to be, to you".

    But, I would look at it and think "There is more than this."

    If I'm not mistaken, this is also the birth anniversary of one Anna Gordy Gaye.

  4. #4654
    Sans, check Anna out on the internet under December 12th.

    It's true, Wikipedia currently has her birth date listed as January 28th 1922.

    There seems to be some confusion with the birth date, as many references state December 12th 1921.

    Included among that number is 'Find-A-Grave', which is generally good enough for me in any discrepancy with dates/years, but there's no grave marker to view in the pics shown.

    Hence, I currently have Anna listed under December 12th 1921, but with the added note 'some sources state date of birth as 28th January' - if only because, in any uncertainty, it seems better to note a birthday before the event, than over a month afterwards.

    If you can find any clear evidence that January 28th is indeed the correct birth date, that would be helpful.

    Quote for the Day:

    "I had a complete fit. I said I'm starving. I've just come from New York and I can't get anything at all.

    You're (Clarence Paul) a producer, you should be able to do something for me.

    We sneaked into the United Sound, sneaked the Funk Brothers in there, sneaked The Andantes in there, and this was all done early in the morning, because Motown would not let their people do anything else.

    Clarence Paul, Stevie Wonder and Morris Broadnax wrote 'I'm Holding On' for me. Stevie was coming up with the melody, and Clarence was pretty much the producer and director of putting it all together, but Morris Broadnax, who lived across the street from me - and it was he I used to cry to about Clarence Paul who was married - wrote all the lyrics.

    Other songs that Stevie, Morris and Clarence wrote - like 'Hey Love', which Stevie did first and then I covered it (for Karen Records, in 1969) and Aretha's 'Until You Come Back To Me' - were all written for me, about my relationship with Clarence Paul."

    Quote for the Day:

    "He (Jackie Wilson) was a family friend. My father was a minister, but he was also a gospel music disc jockey in Chicago at the time, on radio station WVEE.

    Ironically, my father knew Don Cornelius back then, but I didn't know until after 'Soul Train'. Because Don Cornelius had worked at the station, too.

    But my parents had a lot of friends in show business, too. Jackie Wilson was one. One of the first memories I have going to a concert was Jackie Wilson.

    He was the first person to bring me onstage and, I'm telling you, it had such an impact. To this day, I remember he was such a good-smelling man (laughs).

    We used to see him all the time when I was little. As time went on, and our family moved around a lot, we didn't see as much of him. We didn't have a christening or anything like that where he was my godfather, but he'd say "I'm your godfather".

    I don't have a lot of pictures from when I was little because some of our things were lost in storage, but I have a picture of Jackie Wilson and my father. It's on my piano."

    Quote for the Day:


    "When I came to the company, I had probably the original five-note range...everyone else had 105 notes.

    So when the producers would go to do your song, they would find your key, and then they would cut it two keys above that.

    And when Levi did it, and Marvin did it, they reached for those notes, and it sounded great.

    And when I reached for those notes, I sounded like a chicken somebody was trying to strangle!"

    Quote for the Day:

    "At the end of our set, this guy came up to us and said he was called Ron Richards and was from EMI at Abbey Road, and would The Hollies like to come to London and make a demo.

    We were like "Of course!". We went down, recorded the song, and it got in the charts, and we never looked back.

    With the success of The Beatles and the money EMI were making, the first thing they thought was "they can't be the only ones - there must be some more people in the North, so let's go and chase them down", and that was what Ron was doing at The Cavern that day. What great timing!"

    Quote for the Day:

    "We always had the voices, so we didn't have to choose what kind of group we wanted to be.

    Some bands have pop voices, so they become a pop band. Some have gospel voices, so they do gospel.

    We happened to have such versatility that it didn't matter what we did.

    We could do everything from 'Pagliacci' to pop."

    Quote for the Day:


    "Songs outlive people.

    The real reason Motown worked was the publishing.

    The records were just a vehicle to get the songs out there to the public.

    The real money is in the publishing, and if you have publishing, hang onto it. That's what it's all about.

    If you give it away, you're giving away your life, your legacy.

    Once you're gone, those songs will still be playing."

    The audience is yours; they're there to see you."

    Quote for the Day:

    "I think there are several components that explain the amazing success of the Bossa Nova.

    The melodies are haunting and catchy. Great harmonies, great chords.

    Then the sensuality of the music. That's what inspired so many North American musicians like Stan Getz, Dizzy Gillespie and Frank Sinatra to go to that repertoire.

    It's very romantic, but also quite sophisticated at the same time."

    Quote for the Day:

    "I would be a fool if I told you I knew these songs would be so big.

    I felt we could be successful, but I had no idea that these songs would live as long as they have.

    It's just been phenomenal. I remember saying back at Motown "Man, I would love to write classic songs, like a 'White Christmas'."

    As it turns out, many of our songs have become classic, too.

    But back during that time, we were just focused on writing songs for the current project we were doing."

    Quote for the Day:

    "There were a lot of artists here in New Orleans that Motown wanted to sign, and they didn't sign up with Motown. For whatever reasons, they chose not to.

    Probably some reason they didn't feel comfortable with the whole situation.

    But Motown people came to New Orleans, and hung out in New Orleans, before they went back to Motown and came up with what they came up with.

    But they don't say that, because they want people to think they came up with this all by themselves.

    But they didn't. People like Earl King and people who have passed on, there are stories they could tell you about Motown that would make your hair stand on its end, OK?"

    Quote for the Day:


    "Berry and I talk about it all the time.

    We never dared to dream that Motown would become what it has become.

    The very first day of Motown, there were five people there.

    Berry Gordy sat us down and said, "I'm going to start my own record company. We are not just going to make black music - we're going to make music for the world."

    That was our plan, and we did it."

    Quote for the Day:


    "...I've always enjoyed performing in smaller venues.

    People can see all of me there.

    In large venues, audiences miss the essence of who I am. Part of what I do is in my body language, my hands, my arms - all of that.

    You miss a lot by just hearing my voice.

    It's a performance, it really is, and I love doing it."

    Quote of the Day:

    "Natalie Wood was the hardest situation, because she'd been lied to.....

    The studio executives knew I would do all of her voice work but, because her ego couldn't take it and they were afraid she'd walk off the picture, they let her record all the songs with the orchestra.

    But they told me they'd throw it all out and record over with my voice.

    We were there at the same time, recording."

    Quote for the Day:

    "Music has been my whole life.

    I don't know if you'd call it a spiritual connection, but I'd die without it.

    One thing that I'm proud of is that I was able to make a living for my kids.

    I've always wanted them to know about what goes on around here, so they can take it on after I've gone.

    I've always loved all of them, the boys and the girls.

    I teach them the board, help them write songs, play the piano for them.

    I just can't live without music, man. I still walk the floor at night, get up, and play something that's in my head.

    I'm still always trying to create something."

    But I learned that accent from him, and that was the one I used for Scotty.

    Quote for the Day:

    "God gave me this skin colour, he also made us what we are.

    So, in Junior High School I could do two things.

    I was an athlete, so I could run real fast, and I could sing, which helped me mix with the Black Americans, the sisters, who accepted me for who I was.

    When they heard me sing they were like, 'whoa, is that you?!'.

    It's something I think God gave me, to help me break down that divide.

    Someone said to me, 'I never had a white friend, until I met you."

    Quote for the Day:

    "When 'Casanova (Your Playing Days Are Over)' was released, and I heard it on the radio for the first time, I was lying on the floor half asleep, and it came on.

    And from there I started working right away at the Howard Theatre in Washington.

    There, I met so many other artists and friends - James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Joe Tex, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder.

    That was the very highest and happiest point of my life."

    Quote for the Day:

    "When I married my first husband, Johnny Nero, I used to live in a rooming house. It was only one room.

    One day I heard these girls singing, I came out, sat on the stairs and heard them saying that they needed somebody to sing part of the harmony.

    One girl was missing. I just said 'I can sing', and one of the girls said 'We don't need you, we already got somebody'.

    Then Katherine Anderson of The Marvelettes said 'Let her come down and sing the part. We got to get it together, and we can't find the girl'.

    I went down and started singing, and we were harmonising really good.

    They were scheduled to sing at a talent contest at Inkster High School, but at the same time I got homesick, so I went back home to North Carolina and stayed there for a few months, and while I was there I saw this magazine cover: 'Marvelettes discovered by Motown.....'.
