Featured in TIR Episode 281 (2 parts): Multi-instrumentalist Orlando Phillips and his drumming brother Greg Phillips, founding members of Starpoint — one of the 1980s’ top R&B bands.
Led by the lead vocals of Renee Diggs and featuring two more Phillips brothers, Ernesto & George, along with Kayode Adeyemo, Starpoint released 10 albums from 1980-1990. Four of those records reached No. 32 or higher on the R&B charts, and the band notched 12 Top 40 R&B hits, including the 1985 crossover classic, “Object of My Desire.” Other top hits included “What You Been Missin’,” “Restless” and “He Wants My Body.”
The brothers continue to perform today, and a 6-CD box set of Starpoint’s Elektra recordings was released in November.
