“I’ve seen most of them broke, drunk or naked — or all three.” – washingtonpost.com

You grew up in a neighborhood with some pretty decent singers, didn’t you?

But they’re just other people who sing! Aretha was a chick who had a
real high voice and sung in her father’s church. I can’t think of them
as being legendary. I’ve seen most of them broke, drunk or naked — or
all three.

My friend Nekisha introduced me to Bettye LaVette when her last album “I’ve Got My Own Hell to Raise” (2005) was released. Check out the link for the full interview.
