Lionel Richie Looks Forward to Commodores Reunion

Grammy award winning singer and R&B legend Lionel Richie is looking forward to a Commodores reunion, the same group he broke away from in the late 70s to pursue a solo career. Performing over the weekend at Antigua’s Romantic Rhythms Festival, Richie says “We better do it now, or in the next 10 years or nobody would care.” Richie, now 58, said it was important for the group to get together before it loses more band members. Lead guitarist Milan Williams died two years ago. Richie was confident that synergy still existed between band members. He said Commodores’ bass player Ronald La Pread joined him on stage during his last tour and played some of the group’s old hits. The Commodores were known for hits like “Three Times a Lady” and “Brick House.” Richie said a reunion and tour could happen in the next two years.
