One thought on “R.I.P. Billy Paul

  1. God..just when I’m trying to get over Prince’s death..Billy Paul also dies.

    I remembered him and of course that song..Mrs.Jones. I would say that he was my dad because I thought that every African American man with lighter brown skin, a thick beard and\ or glasses looked like him..lol!( I also thought the same about the late Teddy Pendergrass).

    I also thought that Billy’s inside record cover was weird and oddly ,I was scared of it. In it,he was standing on a rock..with some designed robe like he was a God. His album cover ,along with Kiss and Funkadelic were record covers I was afraid of..for some reason..lol!

    A couple of years ago, a cousin of mine asked me was I still ” scared” of that cover? Nope..but I still wondered why he stood on that rock..lol!
