Gus Redmond

Record biz veteran Gus Redmond seemed to have been made for the business. With his large friendly eyes and wide open face, Redmond looks like a natural candidate for the meet and greet, schmoozy field of record and concert promotion. Redmond also dabbled in the creative side of the record business by singing in Major Lance and the Love Tones and co-writing such hits as "The Sly, Slick and the Wicked" by the Lost Generation and "Mellow Mellow Right On" by Lowrell Simon. The latter was the source for numerous raps and samples, most notable Massive Attack's "Lately," Markie Dee, and Chicago rapper Common.
