Dizzy Gillespie

Rick James on Dizzy Gillespie: During the Throwin' Down tour I went to see Dizzy Gillespie at the Blue Note in New York. Man, I loved Dizzy. He was a guru, a beautiful man filled with the spirit of compassion, the father I never had. Diz was never judgmental. He used to say I was too serious and warn me not to look at life so black and white. He saw I was wild. "Rick," he said, "you remind me of Bird. Boy, you better slow down." But even Dizzy, for all his wisdom, couldn't change my reckless ways.
