    A few stories from the legendary Don Pi, Tim Maia's old roommate and band memeber during the 1970's and 1980's.

    Tim Maia might well be the greatest (and craziest) soul singer you never heard of. Infamous in Brazil, Tim Maia was a soul grenade that exploded in the 1970's. He single handedly revolutionized Brazilian popular music and had the best time ever doing it. His story is one of humorous excess in every way imaginable and has something for all the family: drugs, women, money, guns and even a UFO cult thrown in. He lived the dream, always with a smile on his face.
