提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!
We had a rickety washing machine. We weren’t able to buy a new one. Whenever it washed, it would create, you know, make noises…something like that. And Michael was, I guess, he was about 11 or 12 months old. He was dancing to the rhythm of the washing machine and I knew then that he had a lot of rhythm.

Michael would always do funny things, anything, for a laugh, anything for a laugh. * was always very persnickety of the way she kept her room. And she had this beautiful, I think it was a white satin bedspread that she’d just gotten. Michael took some invisible ink and he spread it all over the bedspread, squirted it all over, then he had her come in and look at it. She was livid.

Michael used to love telling me stories about *, Indiana, especially how we would have a candy store and he would sell candy to all the neighbors and to his brothers. And he never made any money doing it, but he showed signs of being an entrepreneur at a very young age.

As kids, we had a lot of fun, you know, just playing around the neighborhood, and you know, playing practical jokes, throwing balloons out the car windows at bus stops, singing and dancing to every song that came on the radio.

Michael would use some of the money from his candy store to go and buy 45s, ‘cause in those days, that’s what kids bought, 45s. And if you were lucky, you’d buy an LP. But he started listening strong of James Brown from the time he was about five years old. He had a great taste for real R&B, gritty R&B like Wilson Pickett, the D*, great singers like *.

We sang country songs and we sang folk songs and they started singing the temptations when we got a television.

My father had a guitar that he kept locked in the closet. And one day, he didn’t lock the closet and then I started playing it. I learnt every song on the radio and made my brother sing with me.

* had warned them, “don’t play with guitar now.” and so * took it out and played it and a string broke. There was no way of hiding that he hadn’t had his guitar. He punished them for it. Then he said let me hear you play. And * played for him. * just said nothing else to him, “you can play it if you want to.”
