"There was a music festival that was going to be on at the same time as the Ali-Foreman 'Rumble in the Jungle' fight. It was intended to promote racial and cultural solidarity between African-American and African people. Artists like James Brown, B.B. King, the Spinners, Bill Withers, the Pointer Sisters, etc,. were scheduled to perform. Often after a day of training at his camp, Ali would hang out with some of these musicians. His strong, charismatic personality overwhelmed them. He always took control of the room because he was the Greatest. The only exception was with Etta. Unlike the bravado he had around other artists, Ali seemed like a little boy looking for her approval. He knew just how to get into anyone's heart."
