Personal Quote:

I really think it's possible (and still do) to make good music and be commercial at the same time. I believe it is the artist's responsibility to take the music to the people. Art for art's sake is nice; but if art doesn't communicate, then its worth is negated. It has not fulfilled its destiny. See more »

Trivia:

He and wife Corine had two sons, John and Rashid. See more »
