 Lionel Richie
One of the most stubborn barnacles to have attached itself to the hull of the big, dumb 80s pop music ocean liner, Lionel Richie spent the early part of his life on the campus of Alabama's Tuskegee Institute, where his grandfather had established the family a generation earlier.
The son of a school principal and an Army systems analyst, Richie's initial career plan was to become an Episcopal priest; when the time came for him to attend the Institute himself, however, this plan was altered in favor of a major in Economics and a minor in Accounting.
By the arrival of the 1980s, Richie had expanded his activities beyond the confines of the Commodores, writing and producing the sappy (and enormously successful) ballad Lady for pop-turned-country-turned-pop crooner Kenny Rogers.
