Wild Man Fischer: Look Out, Las Vegas

Steven X Rea, Chic, December 1978

"I'LL BET YOU that if I played Las Vegas, Don Rickles, Frank Sinatra, Buddy Hackett, everybody in that place would look up to me and say, 'Ah, he's really great!' I could play the Sands, the Sahara, the Dunes. You put me up against any of those other big entertainers – I don't care who it is – I could be right up there with them!"
