"The poster nearly sold as many copies as the record. My idea was to switch from black to white. I was dressed in tight all-white high leather boots, a fancy white top, and a white cowboy hat. My hair fell below my shoulders, and in my right hand, I held a joint. I exhaled defiantly. Naturally, I had to call the thing FIRE IT UP." - Rick James  MORE >>
