Andre Williams – LIVING WRITERS

Andre Williams

From the archive:


Andre Williams reads from his book Sweets and Other Stories (Kicks Books 2009).

You may know Andre, as many do, as “Mr. Rhythm” from his time at Fortune Records and Chess Records and in Motown with hits such as “Bacon Fat,” “Greasy Chicken,” Jail Bait,” and many others.  A true legend.

Andre Williams joins us for the Annual Fundraiser and gives the best pitch ever! We talk about writing his first song, truth, rehab, stories, women and energy drinks.
