One thing that is true about me is that I interviewed Lionel Richie for the February issue of Spin. (The link is here.)
Another thing that is true is that my favorite jam in 1981 just might have been “Lady (You Bring Me Up),” off Lionel’s final album as a member the Commodores.
One thing that is not true: Lionel was the model for Lion-O, the leader of the ThunderCats.
Anyway, Lionel has a surprisingly good sense of humor about himself. But I guess you’d have to if your photo album included this bad boy:
