This Metro Detroit musician is seen here in a recording studio, just before the
'mania began and long before his MTV breakthrough video. To this day he continues
to have a loyal following of fans who appreciate his clever craft as a singer
Can you identify this man?
Welcome to another episode of thedetroiter.com's NetWaves
We've just added another lunch-box full of Detroit-centric music
to the radio. So turn up your volume, click on the radio
and dig in! The sounds of Your City await you!
This month's updated playlist includes new additions like "Rubberband
"Got Some Teeth" by Eminem's label mate Obie Trice, plus
some tasty new cuts from Audra
release "Million Year Old Sand." (Michigan's own Times
Motor City trainspotters rejoice!
This month we begin what could possibly be a recurring feature here
"Who da Man?"....aka "Name that dude." ...aka "Who's that girl?"
aka, errrr....well, y'all get the idea.
We will feature photos of Metro Detroit celebs (or psudo-celebs)
from either their pre or post fame era. Can you
name them? Each month one lucky winner will be selected
at random from all correct entries. (One guess per email address
please) Click on the "Who da Man" pic above to enter.
It's just that easy.
We are looking for more ultra rare pics! (even kinda rare will do)
Musicians, politicians, actors, authors, artists, atheletes, athiests,
you name it.
Do have a photo of
Ted Nugent, from back in Jr. High when he was part of that Modern
Dance Troupe? Then we want to see it!
Do you have a recent photo of Bill Bonds appearing in the Livonia
Elks Club's version of Riverdance? Really? Wow! Send it in!
Do you have an early photo of of Carmen Harlan from back when she
was a he? Harlan Carmen? Well, hell yeah,
we REALLY want to see that!
Alright...Stop, Drop, Kabooom baby - I'ma kidding of course.
It may, no doubt, bring many of you joy to Photoshop a tutu onto
Mr. Nugent or scribble a goatee onto Ms. Harlen's lovely face...but
those aren't quite the sort of photos we are looking for. Sorry.
But if you do have a genuine, rare photo of a Motor City celeb, in
either a "Where
they were then" or "Where are they now" phase:
PLEEEEEEEEASE email them to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for reading and thanks
* Editor's Note - anyone still holding any photos of Tommy Onyx from
back when he had those gawd awful 'Milli Vanilli braid extensions'
are cordially invited to burn them!
And yes, we know; of course he's not a 'celebrity.'......but burn
burn them, burn them, burn them!!!
