LIVING COLOUR EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW
Yinka and Living Colour
Wikipedia: Living Colour is an American rock band from New York City, formed in 1984. Stylistically, the band’s music is a creative fusion influenced by free jazz, funk, hip hop, hard rock, and heavy metal. Their lyrics range from the personal to the political, in some of the latter cases attacking Eurocentrism and racism in America. The band was discovered by Mick Jagger while playing a show at punk club CBGB’s in 1987 & rose to fame with their debut album Vivid in 1988
LIVING COLOUR EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW with YINKA at the VIVID 25 yr Anniversary show London Mar 8! UNMISSABLE
This is a very special edition of the show.
I was honoured to be granted an exclusive interview with Living Colour's Vernon Reid and Corey Glover - right before they went on stage at Koko in London on Friday 8 March 2013 to perform their seminal, debut album VIVID in it's entirety to a packed house. They discuss topics far and wide with candour and humility. I've spoken with Vernon on a few occasions & our conversations are always enlightening but to have Corey join the discussion was something new. Enjoy!
