Gregory Hines — American Actor born on February 14, 1945, died on August 09, 2003

Gregory Oliver Hines was an American actor, singer, dancer and choreographer... (wikipedia)

You know the first time I sat in the chair I felt anything but up, it was very emotional for me. I had a chair in my hotel room, a chair at rehearsal, and I was trying to spend as much time as I could in the chair.
I never wanted to be a star, I just wanted to get work.
I don't remember not dancing. When I realized I was alive and these were my parents, and I could walk and talk, I could dance.
Once I got to be about twenty-five, I got interested in the music of the time. I started smokin' dope, I started drinking, I started slowing down and trying to find myself. I didn't want to work in nightclubs.
I grew up in the '50s, a tough time for African Americans. I had friends whose fathers would openly say, 'Just bite your tongu;, don't cause any problems.' My father was not like that. Even in the toughest times racially, if somebody disrespected his family, they were in trouble.
