When I was a young kid (15 -16) I was blessed to meet some very special people from the Detroit music scene. As I grew older I met even more. In the following days, I will post some photos of these great people for you all to see. A good picture is worth a thousand words, so if you don't mind, I'm gonna
lay down a few thousand.......
LOL

I am looking forward to seeing Photos from all the members of this village, from all the soulful places on the planet. I live very near Detroit and have been lucky enough to meet and become good friends with the people you see in my photos. Detroit musicians have always been involved in the soul music scene since it started. Detroit has been called "A working man's town" by others, and The musicians and performers from this city have done their share of "soulful" work.

I can't wait to see what other fans display, from their city's stash of
famous performers and musicians. It will be an eye-opening expirience
for all vistors to this great place. This is gonna be fun !!!
The best to you all,
toad
