Once Yesudas came to record a song in a famous studio in Chennai and as he placed his book on the stand, it fell down. An angry Yesudas shouted at the studio folks and threatened to walk out. Even the music director, Raveendran was helpless and said that when Yesudas’s mood is off, no one can do anything.
This incident was seen by Pradeep Somasundaran and he talks about this and many such stories in an interview with Joseph Thomas at M-POD. Pradeep, if you did not know, was the winner of Meri Awaz Suno on Doordarshan many years back. He now sings for albums, stage programs and movies. The interview is about Pradeep’s career before Meri Awaz Suno, his association with the music director Raveendran, singing tracks for various movies like Manichitrathazhu, etc.
