Today we’re hanging out with Vernon Reid and Corey Glover from Living Colour! The guys tell us how their 2012 performance at the ‘Robert Johnson at 100 Tribute’ inspired them to lean in a distinctly bluesy direction on their new album ‘Shade’—their first in nearly a decade. Plus: how “Happy Birthday” played into the band’s formation, what they were up to during their hiatus, and why they chose to cover the Notorious B.I.G. on their new album.
