    Multi-Grammy nominee the Spin Doctors, with their unique blend of pop, funk and progressive rock, owned the radio and MTV airways in the early '90s with hits like "Two Princes", "Little Miss Can't Be Wrong", and "Jimmy Olsen's Blues" from their five-time platinum break through album, Pocket Full of Kryptonite.

    You think you know the Spin Doctors? Think again. When the legendary New York quartet released If The River Was Whiskey on Ruf Records in 2014, casual fans discovered the secret past the hardcore have never forgotten.

    To the wider world, the Doctors might be the multi-million-selling icons behind hits like "Two Princes" and “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong,” not to mention the classic “Jimmy Olsen's Blues”. But in 2014, Chris Barron (vocals), Aaron Comess (drums), Eric Schenkman (guitar) and Mark White (bass) are reconnecting with the flat-broke twenty-somethings who scraped for dollars at the sharp end of the Big Apple blues circuit. The Spin Doctors have come full-circle.

    Politically driven in their lyrics and eclectic & experimental in their sound, Living Colour made an indelible mark on the ‘80s/’90s music scene, picking-up two Grammies, three MTV Video Music Awards, opening slots on tours with Guns & Roses and The Rolling Stones, and a slew of hit singles including "Love Rears Its Ugly Head", "Type", "Glamour Boys", and "Cult of Personality".

    During the 1980s, rock had become completely segregated and predictable; the opposite of the late '60s/early '70s, when such musically and ethnically varied artists as Jimi Hendrix, Sly & the Family Stone, and Santana ruled the Earth. But bands such as New York's Living Colour helped break down the doors by the end of the '80s, leading to a much more open-minded musical landscape that would eventually pave the way for future bands (Rage Against the Machine, Sevendust, etc.). Starting with Vivid and continuing on future albums, the band showed that rock could still convey a message.

    Spearheaded by guitarist Vernon Reid, Living Colour emerged into the scene and stood out like a sore thumb - their music a creative fusion influenced by free jazz, funk, hard rock and heavy metal.  By 1986, the band started to solidify, with 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.   Their debut album, Vivid eventually became a multi-platinum, Grammy-winning success.

    Living Colour’s instrumental prowess gave them a level of critical respect most other bands of that ilk were not afforded. The band built up quite the following in their original eleven year run, picking-up two consecutive Grammy Awards for Best Hard Rock Performance and three MTV Video Music Awards.

    Living Colour still stands as one of today’s finest hard rock, metal, funk, fusion bands – make sure you check them out.
