    I fell in love with Luther\'s voice when I was younger and I heard him singing about Budweiser Beer in a TV Commercial. I remember writng them asking who is the person singing that song? Tell him he needs to make records! They never wrote back! Thank more...

Quotes

1 Quote »

"It was the women (Dionne Warwick, Aretha Franklin, The Supremes) who drove me to the stereo. Men feel they have something to prove. They don't trust their automatic pilot chops. Females do. They go on deeper dramatic trips, take more chances. Put it out there with greater flair."
