“I wasn't trying to write. I started singing, ‘She's a very kinky girl…’ I was about to stop - the whole thing sounded a little dumb - when one of my cats said, ‘It's cool. It's hypnotic’... right then and there I had the engineer hook up a mic and started singing the story as it came to me - this story of a super freak. I never wrote down a word. Made it up on the spot.” - Rick James  MORE >>

You can thank Shirley Matthews for that - the hit recording artist behind ‘Big Time Boy.’ "At the time, I was using the name of Ricky James Matthews… I was told (by Matthews) to change my name to Rick James, and that it would take eight years for me to make it, and that I'd have to pay all kinds of dues first. And it happened exactly the way she said it would." - Rick James  MORE >>
