Le Metropole Hotel ...mad ghosts floating around...Albert Einstein, Madame Currie and dem....my 3rd Negroni (somehow I always drink bitters when I speak French)....and I'm making a budget but entertaining myself at the same time by playing Michael McDonald....and I discover that I'm slightly in love with Louis Johnson. One because I'm a fricken bass groupie whore....can't get enough of a bass lick thanks to the brothers FARRIS - Darryl and Troy - my uncles and subsequently my favorite men in the world....anyway, I have a hankerin for a bass slap. The reason I'm even in this business is because I was a stone cold groupie for Leonard Hubbard. It's true. I'll admit it. I ain't scared. But Louis lays it on ya. I wish there was some footage of him playing this...but alas it was a studio joint and he had is own group The Brothers Johnson to get back to and ...oh yeah...making history and shit on a little album we ALL bought....per history.....THRILLER....so yeah...I got in on repeat....about the 10th time. I haven't told Macy's bass player yet that I'm such a groupie...but I see you Michael Torres. I don't want to scare them too soon.
