#23 - Raphael Saadiq Interview

The multi-talented Raphael Saadiq is a singer, songwriter, instrumentalist and producer of records for a flurry of stars including D’Angelo, John Legend, Whitney Houston, TLC and Joss Stone. He spoke with Tom about his beloved brother Jimmy to whom his most recent record is dedicated following his passing, initially being too intimidated to accept an offer to collaborate with his heroes Earth, Wind & Fire, and why, for him, going on tour with Prince was equivalent to getting a degree.
