Back in the days of the original five, there was a neighborhood theater called The Breevoort in Brooklyn. I went there to see them. Since it was just a simple movie theater, they weren't really equipped with secluded dressing rooms, separate entrances for stars etc. So, during intermission, I was going up the stairs to the bathroom. Melvin was coming down the stairs opposite me. The stairs were carpeted, he was wearing slippers. He slipped on the carpet and slid into me! He said, "are you okay?" That voice reverberated throughout my whole body! I had one of their albums with me, Gettin Ready, and asked him to autograph it for me. He took it to the dressing room and Otis and David also signed it. To this day, that signed album cover is framed and hanging in my house. A memory I will always treasure.

        The Brevoort, wasnt far from where we lived and I found it interesting that people could even change in that place but it was always a good place for live show "back in the day" Thanks for sharing

      Hi lynn. Dennis is still a handsome, vibrant looking man. The Eddie Kendrick Unsung was recorded only last year if I saw date correctly and Dennis was on a lot of the footage. What is it with Otis... more
