Alan Leeds–I Managed James Brown
Alan Leeds has all the best stories because he’s had all the best jobs. He was James Brown’s manager, then Prince’s manager, then’s D’Angelo’s manager, then Chris Rock’s manager. He writes about working with James and having a front row seat for the Godfather’s incredible career in his great new memoir There Was A Time: James Brown, the Chitlin Circuit and Me. I’ve known Alan forever so we talk about everything—James Brown, Prince, D’Angelo, Chris Rock. Who they were and how it was each of them changed the culture.
