Dothan, Alabama.

I love Dothan.  I’ve got family – got kin down there.

 

I grew up in the South too, listening to those same old black gospel records as you. Sam Cooke and the Soul Stirrers, Mahalia Jackson.  I used to sing that high part on “Take My Hand, Precious Lord” (attempts chorus.) Um, that was before my voice dropped.

Those records are incredible.

 

So, I learned something about interviews from your new book. 

Oh yeah?
