Luther Vandross

Geoffrey Himes, Musician, December 1982

LUTHER VANDROSS curled up in the stuffed arm chair with his Wizard-of-Oz red ruby shoes tucked under his massive bulk. When he described Dionne Warwick's singing, his eyes rolled towards the ceiling and he squealed, "Puhleez, it was too much," as if he couldn't stand so much pleasure. His goatee twitched with glee and a big belly laugh rumbled out of his big belly.
