- Date Created
- SOUL Publications, Inc. records, 1955-2002
Transcribed from container: "Natalie Cole and D.J. Rogers, ca. 1978."
D.J. Rogers is likely DeWayne Julius Rogers, keyboardist.
On side A, Natalie Cole talks about a recent vacation to France; whether people have an issue with her not performing the "role of a minister's wife"; whether people take her seriously when she speaks about religion; if she feels like men in the industry feel intimidated by her; the "infamous" Rolling Stones piece on her; her relationship with Aretha Franklin and her feelings about newer artists getting "Natalie Cole" and "Aretha Franklin" comparisons; her background "growing up white"; growing out of her father Nat King Cole's shadow and maintaining his legacy; her next album; relationships with the press; and a fond memory of Christmas for SOUL Magazine's Christmas issue.
On side B, DJ Rogers talks about Natalie Cole's performance in Long Beach; "message music"; how long he's been singing; the gospel that inspires his music; how he reaches people off stage; his challenges in life while pursuing music; his childhood musical favorites; his wishes to collaborate with artists, such as the Isley Brothers, the Commodores, and Maurice White; and his response to a Christmas issue survey.
