#22 – Ray Charles Jr. – You Don’t Know Me

Ray Charles Jr.
He is the son of Ray Charles, yet for most of his early life, his dad was not around; constantly out on the road.  Ray Charles Jr. has just written the book “You Don’t Know Me,” which delves deeper into the story of his father than the movie “Ray” ever did.  He talks candidly about how his dad’s transgressions had a lasting impact on he and his brothers, and how despite seeing firsthand the dangers of drug abuse, he traveled down that very same destructive path.  Ray Jr. talks to Icon Fetch about his memories of his dad in the studio, his thoughts on the “Ray” movie, and how his own daughter has a chance to carry on the legacy left by her grandfather.  Click below for the Ray Charles Jr. interview.
