A rock band of Black Americans popular in the late 80s - mid 90s. They played a fusion of heavy metal and funk, tho they also experimented with other styles and genres, too. Living Colour wrote mature, intelligent lyrics to their songs. I saw them on David Letterman in the end of the 80s and they were stunning to the max. They were playing "Which Way to Your America?". The singer Corey Glover(who'd make a fine gospel singer) was screaming out the words like his life depended on it. Guitarist Vernon Reid ranks with the Edge, Jimi Hendrix and other guitar heroes. Bassist Muzz Skillings and drummer Will Calhoun churned out the rhythm. It was trandescent and the band got a big time standing o. In the 90s Muzz was replaced by Doug Wimbish. Living Colour broke down racial barriers in FM rock radio. They disbanded in 1995.
I saw Living Colour live in early 1991. They were magnificent. They rocked down the house. The opening act, Urban Dance Squad, got us primed up.
Eeeeeeeeyo! What's your favorite color, baby?
