LIVING COLOUR is currently on tour in Europe with Doug Pinnick of KING'S X filling in for singer Corey Glover after Glover was unable to make the dates due to a scheduling conflict. The band's guitarist, Vernon Reid, has checked in with the following update:
"We're in Budapest, Hungary and so far it's been great. I have renewed respect for both Doug Pinnick and Corey Glover... Doug is awesome with a lean feral presence and power with a very different take on the songs. We also do KING'S X's 'Looking For Love'. Having said that, I do miss Corey. These are his songs...We don't do 'Glamour Boys' or 'Landlord'. No Point. Doug's take on 'Love Rears' is fresh, though! Corey's passion and power in the LC context is not replaceable. But that was never the point of this. It was at Corey's suggestion that we looked for someone to fill in for these conflict shows and it was my idea to ask Doug Pinnick. KING'S X is arguably the best band we ever toured with, and Doug Pinnick is an incredible vocalist and bassist. It's honor to share the stage with him... All in all a great experience Doug's take's on 'Go Away' and 'Ignorance Is Bliss' rival Corey's in their power. The fans have been wonderful as well. All the shows have been fun. We had an outrageous show in Amsterdam at the Paradiso! Looking forward to this show today at the Sziget fest on the same as IGGY POP and PRODIGY....!"
