The Iceman Talking: The Life And Times Of Jerry Butler

Norman Jopling, Cream, June 1973

BUTLER'S MUSIC Workshop is upstairs in a tatty warehouse building in Chicago's South Side, very near Chinatown and uncomfortably near Lake Michigan so it gets those bone-chilling winds that breeze off the great lake. Inside it's warm and welcoming. The people wear nice smiles and on Jerry Butler's desk is a little identity plaque which simply says ICEMAN.
