  1. Well I don't drink but sure like to meet one of the days. your a good fellow, i already know that.
  2. nice of you to say, think you are aware in my respect to you, yea I'm no author but I've tried to tell a story of their legacy, something the music media seemed to have missed, D. Ross this, D Ross that, Temptations.... if the Masqueraders had been at Motown, media would have something to write about.

  6. the reason is explained in the book as best I can establish
  7. ''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. Nice Wedding ! ''Popcorn'' having given me a lift to the airport for my return flight there was two guys having a row between one another.

  9. Back in November 2020 I hoped to have my book out by Christmas of that year, at the time I blamed it on the pandemic, not true. It was the printers themselves that messed me about, so I had to find a replacement printers and quick. Though getting it out by Christmas was impossible, we did manage to meet a January release. Because of me racing a few things got missed, so I have now published on here a couple articles omitted at the time of going to the printers; A lady I met in more recent times having had the pleasure of her wonderful stage appearance at the UKs Cleethorpes's
