048 - He robbed a woman in Reno just to watch her cry, he‘s Victor Willis and we‘re the Village People!
We start in Europe to bring you a uniquely American musical sensation. It all started in Paris, France with successful music producers; Jacques Morali, Henri Belolo (Jack & Hank). Jack knew how to write a catchy tune and Hank was good at business. After a move to New York City to capture the US market, the fellas recorded a couple of Jack's song's with local back-up singer Victor Willis.
They had a hit with their song "San Fransisco", but weren't an actual band yet! So in need of some People to populate the Village, Jack and Hank place an ad in the local newspaper which read, "Macho types wanted, MUST dance and have a mustache."
After auditioning many different mustachioed men, Jack and Hank had found a roster that they liked and the Village People we're finally formed. There have been approx. 23 Villagers in and out of the Village People over the years, there were some good times and some not so good times.
After being on the run for 5 months, for drug & weapon charges and then featured on the tv show America's Most Wanted, the California cops finally apprehend the Village People's cop, Victor Willis. Listen to the origins of the Village People, learn about the legal troubles of their Cop and let us lend some levity to these Disco Legends. He robbed a woman in Reno just to watch her cry, it's Victor Willis and the Village People!
