“From what people say, Inell, Mary Jane Hooper & ??? were the Explosions, backup singers of Gold Cup fame. Some say they were in high school chorus and Eddie told someone to go down to the school & get some girls for backup on Hip Drop. Anyway, Eddie worked with Inell for a few tracks on Big 9 and Busy B, and sometime around then she fell heavily into drug use (heroin). Her and Eddie weren’t lovers (at least to my knowledge, I believe he was still married to Dolores Johnson around that time), but had a working relationship. Inell and Mary were supposedly best friends, but after Inell hit the junk hard, Eddie refused to work with her until she cleaned up her act and continued working with Mary Jane Hooper. From what the people say, “what do you see in her” was her response to this, and reportedly about Eddie and Mary.”
Young supposedly died of an overdose soon thereafter, though it’s not clear if this was accidental or purposeful.
Again - this might all be mythology but as far as back stories go, it certainly gives what would otherwise be a likable - but not extraordinary - bittersweet love song much added resonance.”
I did not write the above passage, I got it from here:
