I will be writing a story in February for a Denver publication on pro
athletes that were also pro musicians either before, during or after
careers. I'll most likely mention a few athletes that became
entertainers in
other fields like Jim Brown and Chuck Connors, but the main focus will
music and sports.

I'd like to hear from forum members with any suggestions, some of those
feature, good and bad, Paul Robeson, Arthur Lee Maye, "Suga" Ray
Muhammad Ali (as Cassius Clay), Shaquille O'Neal, Joe Frazier and
I'm not covering amateur sports or athletes like Jackie Wilson, just
athletes and professional musicians, despite their success in either

In advance,  thanks mucho.
