Blast From The Past: Sister Sledge - Then & Now

So 26 years later and I still cannot believe 4 attractive black women were stalking and singing about a fat, pudgy, unattractive white man named Frankie. That was the first time I ever remember being exposed to anything interracial. I was scarred for life and have never ventured away from my 'strong black brothas' [as sung like En Vogue.]

On a serious tip though, I really was confused by the choice of lead make for this video, even as a 5 year old.


In this instance, the black is most definitely cracking when it comes to Sister Sledge. Performing this past weekend at Tamworth, the sisters looked a little hella tired. The words that left my mouth when I saw this began with 'Raa' and ended with 'Tid'


I'm sorry but the picture used to promote the sisters for Tamworth Music Festival 2010 were a far cry from the ones that hit the stage.


  1. I would like to know the casting director was back then... Frankie looked mash up! LOL

    That picture... Oh dear...

  2. It could be the stage lighting. Here are other photos from the same show.
