    I can recall popping major wood listening to her voice on my Dad's head sets (At the time my evangelical Baptist Menonite parents didn't allow "Race Music" in their house).

    A friend who was a manager at one of the Wendy's in Greenwich, CT told me about the time Ms. Ross pulled in the drive-thru in her convertible Rolls- Royce.
    Apparently, she did not receive the extra ketchup she asked for and came in the restaurant to tell the manager that she needs to train her employees better..icon_lol.gif.

    Here here. As an anecdote I grew up down the street from the house she bought for her father. Never saw the woman in person. She's one of the souless singers of the 60's 70's.

    In the name of World Peace, one should never start a Diana Ross or a Supremes thread. Fans, especially those who weren't even born, have strong opinions and feelings about the three ladies and what went down among them. Threads quickly deteriorate in flame wars with polarized camps launching vicious attacks.

    I am a lover of the Supremes because they were the first young Black people who constantly popped up on TV in the 60s. We did occasionally see Sammy Davis, Pearl Bailey, Louie Armstrong & Mahalia Jackson, but they were of another generation. The Supremes represented the American dream personified for most Black kids of the day.

    Mary Wilson is my lady because she is a survivor who managed to have a financially successful career rooted in the legacy and in her own right. Check out the lady's pipes. She has evolved into more than a background singer and still actively performs around the globe at age 69.



    Diana Ross has given us some great music. That's all I will say of her. Florence Ballard's life was a tragedy. These ladies were all of 20 years old when living with fame became a way of life. How many of us could have handled the rigors of their career at that age or even in later years?

    Diana Ross, she's the boss. What else is there to be said? Love Flo and Mary, too.



    Motown was brilliant. Mad respect for Diana's solo career too.

    I like Diana Ross and her music. I also don't believe every bit of gossip I hear concerning her.

    Regardless of the negative things some people spread about her, her children seem to love her and think she is a great mother. I think this says a lot.

    We lived down the block from Berry Gordy when I was small.


    That's awsome. My mom worked at Motown and got hit on by one of the Temptations. Word is the Temps were very promiscuous.

    While not being the biggest Ross fan in the world, this song bowed me over and I get weak whenever I hear it. I hope you enjoy this.

    Why did the supremes become Diana Ross and the supremes ?????



    I have not read or seen Dream Girls. How accurate is that book?

    However, I did see a youtube clip in an interview where she said that many groups during that period changed their name in a similar way. And she gave examples. According to her, at that time, it was done for marketing purposes.
