RICK JAMES BACK IN THE SPOTLIGHT

A star-studded comeback for Rick James?

After a decade of staying away from performing, the funk master from Buffalo intends to play a sold-out show Monday night at the House of Blues on the Sunset Strip.

Celebrities expected to attend include basketball great Magic Johnson, actor and talk show host Keenan Ivory Wayans and actor-comedian Sinbad.

James, known for his 1981 hit "Super Freak," served two years in prison for furnishing drugs to a woman at his home in 1991 and for assaulting and imprisoning another woman in a hotel in 1992.
