At that time he was playing concerts in 20,000-seat arenas. My brother and I found seats at a small 4-person table that happened to be right next to the manager’s private reserved table. And the manager had some friends visiting that night, sitting right next to us. During the first set, we noticed that Barry Gordy (the head of Motown Records) was one of the people sitting at the manager’s table. Sitting across from him was a blind man wearing sunglasses. Oh, it was Stevie Wonder. Stevie left after the first set, leaving an empty seat at the table. A large man wearing on overcoat squeezed by us and sat down at the empty seat. It was Mohammad Ali, sitting next to us. And at the time, the admission ticket was only $5. It was quite a night,
