Contest: Who Am I?

22 October 2007 20 Comments

I guess I have to make these harder…you guys are pretty good at this, so here’s a toughie. He’s almost a ‘Good Hair Gone Bad” but isn’t famous enough, only having had one very memorable and catchy hit in the 80s. Who is this?

UPDATE: You guys are so funny. Sorry Lil’ Mama, although I’m sure you would never make-up having seen Johnny Kemp around, I refuse to believe that he would leave behind his gentle Cherokee curl for some baby dreads. Actually, Justjudith nailed this one – the photo above is Ray Parker Jr. who sang the Ghostbusters theme!

    My guess is Gregory Abbot, who sang “Shake You Down.” I think I’m wrong though. . .

    Ray Parker Jr. is a great jazz artist now. In case no one knew, that is the genre of music he is involved in currently and dude is sick with a guitar; great stuff.

    My three favorite songs by ol’ skool Ray Parker Jr. are: “Jamie“, “Can’t Change That“, and “Jack ‘N’ Jill“, if you do not know these tunes, get up on ’em.
