Of course...you knooooow Bobby wasn't having THAT!!
So, when he went on to defiantly perform HIS show HIS way (maybe that's a Pisces thing...especially a legend who deserves the respect and one NOT to be short-changed by someone on the "come up"), the promoter asked ME to go and pull Bobby off stage.
And my response was: "PONCH!! EYE AIN'T GOING ON THAT STAGE AND PULL OFF BOBBY WOMACK!! THAT MAN IS A LEGEND!! PLUS...THAT MAN WILL CUSS ME OUT AND KEEP ON SINGING!! REAL TALK!!! And EYE'm not EVEN about to get embarrassed by Bobby Womack on stage!! NOPE!!"
And soooo....Calvin Pee (fellow broadcast co-worker) and EYE just looked and laughed from the side of the stage and enjoyed the show while Bobby did his glorious thang while Poncho (the promoter) steamed!! Just saying....Mama and Daddy didn't raise no fool. And when a legend is at work and on a mission, EYE know when to get out of the way and just let things BE.
