Before I actually met up with William Scorpion, my only impression of him was that of a flamboyant performer dressed in outrageous costumes and who also couldn’t sing to save his life. After seeing that unflattering video review of his book, William contacted me and assured me that he’s a very different man from the one I last saw on TV in the 1980s.
Well, I found out that William is definitely no Ah Beng. In fact, he is quite a gentleman with some depth as well as intellect. Having finally seen him perform live recently, he has indeed come a very long way since his early days on TV. Even if you can’t hear his vocals too clearly during a performance, there is certainly something magnetic about the man both on and off stage.
