Now we know, Flowers DID NOT gave this nickname to Flash. Well, I think some guys who appreciate only Bronx DJ's would to tell that. That is decreases Flowers's value! :!: :!:

DjReadyRed, Flash himself said his nickname gave him one of his fan. Well, That must be in '74, maybe later. This fan had to take nickname from Flowers, because at this time there was only one Grandmaster in NYC. So, Flash fan gave him Flowers nickname, not Flowers. After that many Bronx cats take it or very similar nickname, but how much of them had skills like Flowers?

Here is source: "My best friend Gordon named me Flash, this was in the ‘70s, and I got the title ‘Grandmaster’ from one of my fans that used to come to the clubs, because of the way I played the turntables. The science of the ‘Grandmaster’ means one that is excellent at their particular field, that’s kinda how I became to be known as ‘Grandmaster Flash’. I think there may have been a ‘Grandmaster Flowers’ before me. (laughs)" :shock: :shock: :shock:

May have been Flash said. When Flowers started Djing Flash was 9 years old and Kool Herc was still lived in Jamaica ...
