Lee Atwater

Atwater did more than just pull every string imaginable during his career as a Republican strategist for Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush. He also recorded an R&B album with B.B. King and other musical legends titled Red, Hot and Blue. Atwater's political and musical exploits are the topic of the documentary Boogie Man: The Lee Atwater Story.
