Lee Dorsey was a great inspiration for me. When it was time to write for him, I would just sit back and begin to listen to the sound of his voice, and I could always hear him singing lines to songs that I hadn’t written yet in my mind… he was a great inspiration. His voice sounded like a smile to me. And I wrote lots of songs for him, just loads of them.
