And I don't know if I just can't remember Shalamar's heyday... but wasn't Jody Watley like WAY MORE POPULAR solo? No wonder they haven't reunited.

I remember tellin someone I was listening to Shalamar, and he didn't know of the group.

Then I told 'im Jody Watley was in it, but when I said Howard Hewitt was in Shalamar, he's like "DAAAMN THAT'S LIKE A SUPERGROUP WITH HOWARD HEWITT IN IT!" lol

Howard Hewitt. Something about that dude I dont' like. What Nia Peeples saw in him, I'll never know. Then she had a kid for the dude too?!?!?! err

Anyway, I'm pretty sure Hewitt's ego is what sunk the group. Remember they had that lanky dude before Mikki Free? He was kicked out, moved to England and hosted a dance show or something. Used to be married to Stephanie Mills. Mills, by the way, had nothing but bad things to say about Hewitt at the time.

Jody was the true star of the group. Man, the first time I saw her in black lycra pants and boots -- worship

ya'll are all smokin' some serious crack.....Howard is truly a talented man.

Jody left to go solo before howard. Rumor has it that he told her that she wouldn't make it and she's been pissed ever since that's why there's been no reunion even though Jeffery is very willing as well. But ya'll trippin' to diss Howard as if he has NO talent. To be honest, Shalamar needed them both. If howard left first, it wouldn't have been the same either. Also Jeffery wasn't "Kicked out". I"m thinking he was a cocky ass bastard and that's why Jody and Jeffery left to go solo.

Howard does gospel now.

Everything Rhondab said is the 100% gospel. Howard is still a great singer and Mikki Free and him are still cool w/ one another.

Jeffery(is it his name?)

Used to beat the fuck out of Stephanie Mills. I remember Jet magazine had her on this issue long ago talking about the physical/mental/verbal abuse she endured from Jeff.

I was no way saying anything about Howard's talent. Everybody knows Dude can blow. I just think Shalamar should have ended when Jody left. There was no Shalamar without both Howard and Jody.

Howard Hewitt kept the group together after Jodi Watley and Jeffrey Daniels left.

Howie had the voice and the looks that lead the band to its greatest successes.

He also had a few other...umm...issues.

He is a great vocalist and has turned his life over to God. Thankfully, he changed his life around and is now an all-around nice guy.

He is seriously underrated as a performer.

You know, I'd never even heard of Jody Watley until talking on the net a couple of years ago and seeing her mentioned.

Jeffrey called in to a radio station about 2 years ago when they were playing some Shalamar. Apparently he said Jody and Howard had some personal issues with each other. His words were "Howard did something to Jody that a man should never to a woman." He didn't go into length about the details. He said he and Howard were open to reunite with Jody to tour, but Jody refused. Whatever happened must have been really bad.

her 1st 2 albums ("jody watley" (1987) "larger than life" (1989)) were damn good cause she was dating andre cymone(ex-prince band) at the time..... you can try the next two after those others ("affairs of the heart" (1991) "affection" (1993)) but andre didn't learn the one prince secret which is called change and evolution and that's why it will sound stale if you hear 'em...

what issues?
the cd he made about his breakup with nia peeples is classic. he's more respected in the industry than jody IMHO--she lucked up on the best new artist grammy (the kiss of death)

i disagree--howard's a vocalist--jody's a performer--and one who based her career on a certain image that she no longer has (old girl has put on a few pounds around the hips)...he has more albums than she does, not to mention when you think of the hits of shalamar--he's on lead vocal. she's andrew ridgley, he's george michael

shalamar had r&b hits...jody had r&b *and* pop hits. and just cause he has more albums out doesnt mean folks are actually listening to them.
