That means alot coming from you. I admire your work.
My mom is a great vocalist and a good songwriter too! Back in the day, she would have blown up huge, cause she was young, beautiful & extremely talented, with an infectious personality.
Without getting into sad stories and too much personal information, suffice it to say, that my step-dad at the time, really helped ruin her career. She was offered 3 record deals when we were on the road, and Ted Turner of CNN fame, actually saw her perform once as well, and was so taken, that he gave my step-dad (her mis-manager) his personal phone number and said he wanted to book her solidly for a cruise lines he was affiliated with at the time.
My step-dad never called him, and he rejected all 3 record deals, from Warner Bro's, Delite Records and I think the other one was MCA.
My step-dad claimed none of them were good enough. But I know he was just insecure about her coming fame, that he would lose control.
Later, an aquaintance I made, a gold record selling artist, told me that even the cruise thing, would have brought her tons of contacts and opportunities, not to mention that it was Ted Turner putting this together for her.
I'll pass your comments along!
