As I was told, the real name of the great dancer (Sylvester) Lon Chaney was Chaneyfield.

Savion. You Are The Man. God Bless You.

While promoting Bamboozled you and a co-star were on some MTV program hosted by TEK. This appearance was the occasion of one of the most honest moments in television history. I will never forget what you said to TEK. He asked you what the movie was about and you said "Its about you brotha'." It was amazing. I couldn't believe I actually got to witness that. WOW...thanks.

Years and years ago Lionel Hampton had a great drummer who was also a great dancer, Curly Hamner, and he had a routine where he would dance around on the stage and then dance to a set of drums and do a great drum solo. Does Savion play drums (or any instrument)?
