The photo at the top of this page was taken backstage at the Coconut Grove in L. A. in the mid 60's. The lady standing next to me is Mary Wilson (of the original "Supremes"), and the gentleman to her left is Marvin Gaye. If anyone knows the name of the lady on the right, please let me know -- I lost track of her!
