I have a DVD I borrowed from my guitarist but I haven't watched it yet, supposed to be very good. I think maybe Phil might have a recommendation to make.

Yes, his life story is nothing if not interesting! All those wives too!

His music, which was strongly influenced by James Brown, is exciting and provocative. He is legendary.


Pity he never learbed to play the saxophone in tune (which was one of Bill Laswell's gripes when he worked on Fela's music).
