NOTES

Hayes often introduces himself as "Ike."

He has 11 children with seven different women, including three to whom he was married.

Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002.

"I'm from an era when seduction was an art. Women don't want wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am; they want to be wooed. I use metaphors instead of describing anatomical parts." --Hayes quoted in New York Newsday, May 30, 1995.

On joining the Church of Scientology: "I stumbled in three years ago. I hit them with a lot of hard questions. I said 'What kind of place is this? Is this a cult or what? I heard y'all brainwash people.'" --Hayes in USA Today, June 5, 1995.

"I can finally enoy 'Shaft'. In fact, I listened to it two days ago and said, 'Damn, that's fresh!'" --From Entertainment Weekly, June 9, 1995.
