    I was actually on Soul Train back in 92. yeah yeah no autographs please. :clap:

    BUT they did 8 episodes per taping and I remember when I was there Father MC, Mary J. Blige and Al B Sure all performed. There were a lot of other folks but I can't remember. I remember Al Jaurreau(sp) was there to.

    Real Story: I went with a friend and we were standing at the front of the stage on the floor waiting for MJB to perform Real Love. Well Mary said she had gum in her mouth so someone ran off to get tissue to take her gum. Well they took to long and she spit on the ground behind the stage. This gay dude standing next to us was livid. He said he didn't care who she was but she wouldn't disrespect Soul Train like that!! LOL.

  • ELove

    I've BEEN wanting to say that but this is a MJB Crew around here and I didn't won't to get crucified for it... ME Thinks that the steroids & HGH usage rumors may be true COMBINED with the early Hard Parting-n-Living of course
