You can thank Shirley Matthews for that - the hit recording artist behind ‘Big Time Boy.’ "At the time, I was using the name of Ricky James Matthews… I was told (by Matthews) to change my name to Rick James, and that it would take eight years for me to make it, and that I'd have to pay all kinds of dues first. And it happened exactly the way she said it would." - Rick James
