Thirty-eight years after he made Me and Mrs. Jones a No. 1 single, the Grammy-winning crooner offers advice to young artists looking to break into the music business. “I still deal with the rudiments—the foundation: the bass, the drum and the piano,” he tells WDKK Radio host Darryl Williams. “And that’s what a lot of the new artists are going back to.
