Born: 1st November 1936, Bessemer, Alabama, USA.

Andre "Mr. Rhythm" Williams started his recording career in Detroit, Michigan on the small but prolific [l147246] label. Williams recorded upon, or has writing credits upon, in excess of 200 songs - including: "Bacon Fat", "Pig Snoots", "JailBait", "Pass The Biscuits", "Rib Tips" and "The Greasy Chicken", working with line-ups like [a1625785].

(This band's tenor-saxophonist was cousin to Williams' wife)

An often risqué musician, Williams became known as a producer and songwriter, composing such tunes as: "Shake A Tailfeather", "Cadillac Jack", "Funky Judge" and "Twine Time" for bands like [a299683] and [a435402].

By the 1980’s Andre Williams was on drugs and homeless. He began making music again in the late 1990s, after cleaning himself up, releasing "Greasy", "Silky", and "The Black Godfather". He has also performed under several aliases.
