Just read an obit today in Goldmine for Sonny Sharrock. In the obit it said that Sonny studied under Sun Ra. Could anyone elaborate on this? I thought Sonny was a doo-wop singer who had been ignored until Bill Laswell picked him up and recorded his stuff for Enemy. If he studied under Ra, is there any chance that he might have been one of the guitarists in the Disco 3000-era of Ra music? Does anyone know more about Sharrock's doo-wop background?
