CFN Quotes of the Week 

“[The Tulsa-based] The Gap Band were a handful. They turned up on the set of ‘Party Train’ in a white limo. They stumbled out of the limo, then one of the dudes bit the makeup woman on the ass. I got them to walk 15 feet twice, did a tracking shot, and then got them the hell out of there.”

—Don Letts, in the new book “I Want My MTV: The Uncensored Story of the Music Video Revolution” by Craig Marks and Rob Tannenbaum

“The Gap Band wanted to be wheeled onto the sand by white guys. Not in the video, but on the set.”

—Simon Fields, also in the book “I Want My MTV”
