Corey Glover of Living Colour (Video Interview)


“It’s a very energetic show, and you know the music sort of propels whatever it is that’s going on. Plus if you listen close enough you might hear something that might make you think…”

From Release: LIVING COLOUR emerged onto the scene and made the people stop and take notice. Formed in 1984 and spearheaded by guitarist Vernon Reid, their music with Corey Glover joining on vocals, bassist Muzz Skillings and drummer Will Calhoun anchoring the rhythm section that helped hone their unique blend of music with broad-based appeal with a creative fusion influenced by free jazz, funk, hard rock and heavy metal. By 1986, the band started to solidify, and their debut album ‘Vivid’ was released in 1988. LIVING COLOUR’s follow up album, ‘Time’s Up’, was a gold selling release that won them their other Grammy for Best Hard Rock Performance in 1991. By the middle of the ’90s, the band had gone on hiatus, and they were re-energised in 2003, and joined by bass player Doug Wimbish. Since then, Living Colour have remained an active unit, released two albums of new material and received raves for their incendiary live performances. Their latest album ‘Shade’ was released in 2017, charting in the US Top Hard Rock Albums Billboard and receiving critical acclaim.

We caught up with Corey Glover to talk about Living Colour’s upcoming Australian tour, the 30th anniversary of ‘Stain’, new music, and much, much more…
