“Wall” b/ Living Colour
“Wall” is another of Living Colour’s (ahead-of-its-time) compositions with words ringing truer today, than when they were written for Stain (1993).
Back Where It All Began
December 21, 2000 @ CBGB — Will Calhoun and Doug Wimbish [HEAD>>FAKE] were playing a gig at the legendary, downtown club, and both Corey Glover and Vernon Reid were in the audience. It had been seven years since the four had played together, and Living Colour’s hiatus was about to end.
First, Corey sang a few tunes, and then Vernon stepped up, played a few more, and ended with “Memories Can’t Wait.” Living Colour had covered the Talking Heads tune for its first album, Vivid, as homage to another band that made its reputation at the legendary, New York City club in the Bowery.
After what everyone agreed was an enjoyable evening of musical fun, Vernon, Corey, Will, and Doug met the next day and discussion of a Living Colour Reunion had begun. Soon after, a national tour was scheduled to start that Spring (2001).
