  1. Another story is about when the Capitols recorded 'Cool Jerk' (it was originally going to be called 'Pimp Jerk' but that title wouldn't have been acceptable back then.) The group were booked to do the first session of the day, the venue was at Golden World Studios (one of the last recording sessions at that studio under Ed Wingates ownership before Berry Gordy JR purchased the studio, then to be called 'Studio B') The track and the vocals will be laid today, on hearing that first take Ollie McLaughlin said it needed 'more kick to the rhythm', so they set up extra microphones in order to

  3. ''Popcorn'' told me about a wedding in Detroit one time, i don't know of he was in attendance or not, but this is how it goes. At the wedding reception some guy barges in holding and pointing a gun, he knew who he wanted to shoot (the groom) he took aim towards the intended victim at which point the best man stood in front of the groom declaring ''if you shoot him, you're gonna have to take me out too'' The gunman shot and killed them both.

  6. Just had my phone call appointment from the top man at the stroke clinic, (he is a wonderful and funny man) over my well being. After a quick few questions I told him that through my book we were able to donate £521 for the KGH stroke unit, he said he wanted to buy a copy, and will send for details through his team.

I'm very
