Episode Summary

Rick James
This is about Rick James, the R&B/funk singer, whose outrageous behavior, both at live shows and offstage, led to his career decline, and cost him his freedom, due to a severe cocaine habit. Rick talks with complete openness about all phases of his life, and describes how prison actually saved him. He candidly states how, under the influence, he involved himself and his wife in the bizarre sex, kidnap, and torture incident of which he was convicted. We also hear from former girlfriend Linda Blair, his new wife Tanya, and some Motown executives.moreless
