A little snippet of something I ran across...
Local members reflect on the All-Stars, anticipate tour South Bend Tribune (Indiana) Jan 05, 2003
SOUTH BEND -- Darryl Buchanan remembers how he met Junior Walker.
"It was fate. An older brother lived in a house on Napier (in 1980), and I was jogging to my brother's house (when) I met Junior's wife."
She was outside, but it was the music coming from inside the house that drew Buchanan.
"She told me to go on in the house," Buchanan said....
Buchanan became an All Star at 17 in 1980 and played with the band off and on until Walker's death in 1995.
With a recent documentary film shedding light on the role the musicians played in creating the Motown sound, alumni from Junior Walker and the All Stars have plans to hit the road as a part of a revue of Motown music called "Motor City Memories."
