25 Years Ago: Living Colour’s ‘Vivid’ Album Released
With its thunderous opening riff, followed by a crushing onslaught of drums and bass behind Corey Glover's volcanic vocals, Living Colour's 'Cult of Personality' kicked in the airwaves during the summer of 1988 with a fresh, aggressive sound. Even if the band was brand new to listeners, their success arrived after years of hard, patient work.
