I love it!!!
29 March 2009 | by See all my reviews

Have you ever wondered about that musician or group that had a hot song or album, but then they disappeared from the spotlight? Ever wondered the causes of the disappearance? Then this is your show. A lot of sources can give you the early life bios and successes, but this show gives the details of what happens in those "dark years", the years after the music stops. And what caused the music to stop, whether it be studio politics and/or personal demons.

Also, the delight of this series is that it focuses on the talented, yet forgotten stars. Everyone knows the Luther Vandross, the Marvin Gaye, the Billie Holliday, and the Diana Ross. But what about Phyllis Hyman, Donny Hathaway, DeBarge, etc..., prepare yourself for some enlightening, entertaining, and at times saddening, moments while watching this.
