    Since his passing in August 2004, Rick James has remained a legendary icon whose name is nearly synonymous with funk music-and who help[ed popularized the genre, creating a lasting influence on pop artists from Prince to Jay-Z to Snoop Dogg. In Glow, Rick James and acclaimed music biographer David Ritz collaborated to write a no-holds-barred memoir about the boy and the man who became a music superstar in America's disco age. It tells of James's upbringing and how his mother introduced him to musical geniuses of the time. And it reveals details on many universally revered artists, from Marvin Gaye and Prince to Nash, Teena Marie, and Berry Gordy.
