Personal Quote:

It's natural that kids should look for excitement and thrills. Well I'd rather that they find it in the theater than in street gangs. I say that if kids have any interest in any kind of music, thank God for it. Because if they have the interest, they can find themselves in it. And as they grow up, they broaden out and come to enjoy all kinds of music. See more »

Trivia:

Broke down barriers by playing music of black artists for primarily white audiences long before most anyone else in the business. See more »
