January 28, 1984

Jan28On this day in 1984, legendary soul singer Nina Simone made quite the statement to NME Magazine, when she claimed she was forced to record her 1978 album Baltimore  after being kidnapped by five men and was then held in a basement for three days without any food or water.

She would later retract this statement.

Simone had a reputation for being unpredictable and violent. In 1985, she accused a record company executive of stealing royalties and fired a gun at home, later stating “I tried to kill him [but] I missed”.

In 1995, Simone shot and wounded her neighbour’s young son with an air gun after the child’s laughter disturbed her concentration.
