You may find the attached podcast about Michael Jackson and the Jackson 5 interesting. It was done a couple of years ago. I had forgotten about it and came across it this morning and listened as I was doing some online photo organizing.
I enjoyed hearing stories that I don't think about and might answer differently today. Hopefully you will be able to reach it through this link. If not, I'm sorry. Let me know what happens and what you think. Regina

Well, I finally finished and published my first book. It's a collection of mostly poetry and some prose written while endeavoring to heal in a poetry writing workshop led by TiOva Padron at the World Stage in Leimert Park. One of my proofreaders suggested I add a TW - Trigger Warning in the beginning. I didn't but am letting you know that it's a very revealing book about the realities of my life from very young up to the 2020 Presidential election. Now I'm actively working on my memoir that will have SOUL stories.

Pieces of My Life by Regina Jones.

Check out fabulous fantastic guitarist Charles Fearing who I've known since he was in high school. Charles, my son Kenny Jones, Richard "Ricky" Wyatt and several others use to play in our garage on a regular basis. Watching family grow from youngsters to incredible musicians is truly a pleasure.

Enjoyed watching Scott Goldfine interview Charles Fearing. I've known Charles since he was about 16 and playing the guitar in the house and garage with my son Kenny Jones, Ricky Wyatt and other youngest with a lot of soul. It was just a way of life that I have to smile about thinking back.

My friend Hassan Nicholas del Campo passed away a few days ago after a long bout with health complications. We hadn't been in contact much over the last few years but he was my best friend for much of my life. We met in jr high at John Burroughs and became close as we both were heavily involved with LA Youth, a teen newspaper in Los Angeles. He was the funniest and most innovative person I ever met. I can't think of another person I genuinely had more adventures with. We lived a lot of life in single moments. We made art and threw art shows, took insane trips to Vegas, and would sometimes just walk together for miles for the hell of it. He showed me how to be more comfortable with myself, and introduced me to new music I would have never found on my own. One of my favorite moments with him was in DTLA. We stopped a bus like we were going to get on and instead just started singing songs from The Little Mermaid. Half the bus and even the driver clapped and were cracking up. He made simple moments fun and special. Ultimately we grew apart and I didn't know how bad his health had gotten until last year. He was not open about a lot of things and tended to deal with a lot on his own. His friends rallied and did the best they could for him until he ultimately passed. I could write a novel about our time together but I am honestly still kind of in shock. Even when you know it is coming, death is surprising. I am thankful that he is no longer in pain and for the impact he had on my life. We are planning a memorial for him ala L.A.undry in a couple weeks and will post more information about that soon. There is also a GoFundMe to cover cremation and memorial costs. We only have a few days to pay before the cost starts going up so anything you can contribute will be greatly appreciated.

It's difficult to distill someone's life into a handful of paragraphs. For Hassan Nicholas Del … Jessica Price needs your support for Hassan's Memorial Funds

I may be her senior but Sheila Eldridge taught me a great many things about being a publicist. I am forever grateful to have been friends with her for a great many years and to have worked under her banner back then. Shout out for Sheila a truly hard working, talented, human who continues to accomplish miracles.

After just having dinner with the amazing and inspiring Sheila Eldridge in DC, she was beaming about her new HBCU First Look Film Fest that was going to be a

John Amos and Regina Jones, SOUL offices 8271 Melrose Ave., Suite 271, Los Angeles, CA 1967 - 1981, on a normal day at the office around 1969. Dig that Afro I'm supporting and the aggressive male move on Johnny's part. I'm flattered by the attention but trying to act undisturbed.

What a read...
I knew John Amos before he became famous. He spent a lot of time hanging out at the SOUL Newspaper offices on Melrose. He wrote the copy for cartoons that appeared in our magazine Soul Illustrated that we published from 1968 - 1972. I can't speak on any of the content of this story but have so many funny and not so funny memories of Johnny. Yes, we called him Johnny back then and I was so hurt when I saw him after several years in a store and called out, "Hi Johnny!" and he responded, "It's John!" frowning at me as if I were a stranger as he kept walking.

Jeff Spann - Maverick's Flat was founded in 1966 by my brother-in-law Actor, Entrepreneur John Daniels. To my knowledge, The Temptations were the opening act. Other performers included Marvin Gaye, Parliament Funkadelic, Earth Wind and Fire, the Commodores to name just a few. John produced his own artists as well, two popular international groups were The Love Machine and my sister-in law's act The Gwen Brisco Show. In those early days, Maverick's Flat was focused on jazz, soul and R&B music entertainment and dance. It also became a well known hangout for famous celebrities like Marlon Brando, Jim Brown, Steve McQueen and many more.
