    Bit of a shame about Rick James popping off! I always liked his stuff - even the later stuff like 'Loosey's Rap'.

    Some top grooves and he must have been a pretty decent bassist when you consider 'All Night Long' (I once had an instrumental version of that on a MJ Girls B side - went for loads on eBay).

    I liked how he was so non-PC and unapologetic about being lascivious (and a complete drug fiend).

    Let's face it, no Rick James = no Prince = no Outkast.

    Had to get some Stone City Band and Bustin' Out on out of respect (also see 'Moonchild' of the Glow LP).

    And also imprison some young tart and burn her with crack pipes - it's what he would have wanted.
    Jet Boy stole my baby.
