Had a better day TV wise yesterday hehe, watched Police Academy 3, which prompted me to write about the one and only . . . Michael Winslow, heard him a little while ago when he was on Radio 1 . . . Blinding he was.
This guy is a man of many sounds, pretty amazing he is.
He was born September 6, 1956 & has been billed the 'The man of 10,000 sound Effects' for his amazing ability to make sound effects with only his voice.
His first appearance on tv was on The Gong Show, in which he squeezed in sound a likes of Benji the movie dog, Jimi Hendrix & Led Zeppelins 'Immigrant Song'.
He is best known by everyone for the playing Sgt. Larvelle 'Motor Mouth' Jones in the Police Academy series of Movies and TV Shows,
he's also appeared in quite a few films, another quite well know one is
Cheech & Chong :)
Think we could easily say that he was THE FIRST beat boxer,
don't ya think??? ^_^
If you haven't ever had the pleasure & don't know who he is
or for those of you that do know, here's a few vids of him in action.
Quality isn't great, it's an old video.
Here he is in action in
Police Academy . . . Something else
he really is
Amazing . . .
This guy is just soooo amazingly talented, I could listen to him for hours
Respect to The Winslow that is Michael ^_^
