25 Years Ago: Curtis Mayfield Paralyzed in Stage Accident
Curtis Mayfield had settled into life as a legacy artist by the late '80s, but he continued to write and record new music -- and he was performing behind a successful new album, 'Take It to the Streets' -- when a horrific stage accident irrevocably changed his life on Aug. 13, 1990.
Happy Birthday, Curtis Mayfield!
When you look at the greatest black musicians who ever lived, Curtis Mayfield and his slick grooves come to mind. The legendary Chicagoan would've turned 73 today (June 3).
