Subscribe to Loudwire on

To see Living Colour live for any rock fan is to witness the infusion of so many musical genres combined together. Their techniques and approach to music had both fans and bands in awe when they performed on ShipRocked 2014.

We caught up with Living Colour on board ShipRocked, and they took us back to when the band first formed. Drummer Will Calhoun explains that their shared thoughts about politics, music and interest in rock music helped form the bond.

They also took us back to when they made their influential album ‘Vivid,’ which celebrated its 25th anniversary last year. The band members also spoke candidly about the impact of being rooted in New York and how it affected not only their lives but their music.

Vocalist Corey Glover sincerely stated that they were more concerned about getting a message out than making a hit record. Their message and music has stood the test of time and is still relevant today.

Living Colour are currently hard at work on a new album. In the meantime, check out Part 1 of our interview with the legendary band above.

Stay tuned for Part 2 of our ShipRocked interview with all of the members of Living Colour.
