Oft gesampled, nie erreicht: Rick James (1. Februar 1948 – 4. August 2004). Aus seiner Biografie:                                                    

„Rick James broke many cultural taboos by flaunting his extravagant lifestyle. As an icon of drug use and eroticism, Rick James went further than anyone had gone before. But before long, his lifestyle started to catch up with him. „During the Throwin‘ Down tour I went to see Dizzy Gillespie at the Blue Note in New York. Man, I loved Dizzy. He was a guru, a beautiful man filled with the spirit of compassion, the father I never had. Diz was never judgmental. He used to say I was too serious and warn me not to look at life so black and white. He saw I was wild. ‚Rick,‘ he said, ‚you remind me of Bird. Boy, you better slow down.‘ But even Dizzy, for all his wisdom, couldn’t change my reckless ways.“
