    And Don McLean has been quite lenient in not taking action against him!

    Jack Johnson played the bass fiddle. He also played maestro to jazz bands and danced along.

    Never seen that before. George certainly wasn’t awful - nice timbre there.

    Not sure if Ernie Terrell ever did any music together with his famous Sister Tammy, but this is him with his other Sister Jean...

    Man, this is a great find. Had no idea Lionel Rose dabbled in music. He's actually pretty good...

    The artist must follow his muse. An artist doesn’t create art for money.

    It’s not about how many people come to see an act. It’s about the music and having fun. If a former champ wants to dabble at being a lounge act, where’s the harm?

    Lighten up and live a little.

    Jean had one hell of a voice. Better than the woman whom she succeeded as The Supremes' lead - Diana Ross.

    Damn, didn’t know she was ever the lead singer for The Supremes. Learned something new. That was quite the talented family....

    Where did I say there was harm? I just stated a fact I heard with no animosity. Frazier has my admiration.

    I know you were more than likely joking bro but just in case, Tammi wasn’t Ernie’s sister.

    Ironically, there was apparently some dude on the internet trying to claim she was married to Ernie - not true either.

    Tammi did however have a relationship with that POS James Brown when she was just 17 and he 29. He used to beat her and on one particular occasion the reason was because she didn’t stick around to see the finish of one of his concerts.

    She left him, became famous for duets with Marvin Gaye but sadly died at just age 24 from a brain tumour.
