CAN YOU GUESS WHO THE HELL I AM?


Alot of people say that I look like my big brother which always made me happy because I always wanted to be just like him when I grew up. In fact, I wanted to be like all of my brothers when I grew up. I got my wish in 1977. If I had only known what a double-edged sword that wish would be. Anyhoo, I became the first male solo artist to chart three consecutive Number One singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. A feat not even my brother’s accomplished. I was so happy! All of my dreams were finally coming true! My career was solid gold and quickly gained platinum momentum! The money was pouring in! Beautiful women were throwing themselves at me! I could do no wrong! I was hot!

But eventually what is hot usually turns cold. The constant pressures and excesses of success and living in the shadow (dancing) of my big brother’s began to consume me and I turned to drugs to help with the pain. Alot of people tried to help me get off drugs and turn my life around, but they failed. Not even the love of my life who was a Dallas beauty could help me. After she left me, that was one of the principal reasons it all went downhill from there for me. My records stopped selling, I was fired from a tv-show, I had to declare bankruptcy and my brief stint in rehab was unsuccessful. I was down but not knocked out. With nothing to lose, I decided to make an attempt to resurrect my career. Unfortunately, I would never get that chance because on March 10, 1988 I died from myocarditis at the very young age of 30. Even though my life was tragically cut short, I left behind some great songs that still make people shake their bootys on the dance floor even to this day. WHO THE HELL AM I?
