Bobby Womack’s honesty and love for his art has kept him in the business thus far, despite his struggle with drugs which he is very open about. It was interesting to hear his testimony about his so called friends, betting to see who can get him high and bringing him drugs. Drug involvement is the familiar story which has crippled most of our great entertainers. Such as the late Whitney Houston. However, we are glad that Womack survived and is able to tell the truth about the terrible influence of drugs while trying to escape the pressures of the highs and lows of the music business.
His music is based on information and personal experience providing lyrical recipes for hit songs. A good song is always based on an experience shared. According to Bobby Womack, “It’s important that you have a story and a good hook line. It’s always gonna go back to that.” You can hear that on the new Cd The Bravest Man In The Universe. Congratulations Mr. Womack on your new project. Welcome Back!
