At the time, Living Colour had something that wasn't being heard before, and it was exciting this energy the band had generated around us.

Even beyond the song and the song structure, there was something going on between the four of us back then where it's like in art when something is created before the vocabulary is there to describe it.

And Living Colour had that in terms of what we were doing in the room, and the energy we were producing. People and critics were describing the music in terms that were familiar to them, but make no mistake there was something there that preceded the vocabulary to describe it. So people like Mick Jagger were curious about it, but it wasn't just him. We had Phil Ramone come down, Cyndi Lauper.

There was a point when celebrity people in the music business were coming down to see us play. It was mad cool. Corey: Mick was really, really trying to figure out a new sound at that point for himself. He had Doug Wimbish, who later on became a part of our band and has been one of our friends for a very long time. He was trying to branch out into something else, and he had his ear to the ground.

If it wasn't for Doug saying to him, "My friends have a really good band. You should check them out. And if you need a guitarist for any extra solos or anything, talk to my friend Vernon. His band is amazing. And Jagger came out and talked to us. He was saying, "Yeah, I hear a lot of good stuff about your band.

Dougie keeps telling me all about you. A week later after seeing us play he said, "Anything I can do for this band, let me know. So he thought why doesn't the band come down to the studio for a couple of days and cut some demos. We'd come in at night to work on our songs. We only did two songs because Mick thought two songs would be enough to get people interested, and obviously he was right.

He also wound up playing harmonica on "Broken Hearts" later on down the line. Muzz: But then, that was it for a while. Mick came back to mix Primitive Cool and was then doing promo and press. So it was the VJ and the writer both suggested that maybe the band could use a rock legend's hand up. It was they who also suggested to Mick that Living Colour was the young new thing, which I also think helped inspire him to produce the two-track demo for us.

Doug: What took place was, Mick had asked his engineer at the time, Ron St. Germain, 'Hey Saint, could you come in over the weekend, I want to cut a couple of demos on Living Colour. Saint: I got the tap to do the demos, because Jagger was supposedly producing it. We were in Studio B at Right Track. The Stones are the Stones, though.

They are the essence of rock n' roll, so that hand wave was incredibly significant. Vernon : It really took a lot for Vivid to exist. Everything had to go right, and then Mick Jagger had to take an interest. There's something to the fact that the most recognizable rock star in the world at the time had to take an interest in us for our record to even be heard is crazy.

It took an extraordinary set of circumstances. And I'm very thankful for those circumstances, but the fact is we shouldn't have to have the No. With time, we take things as givens, but this was never a given. We had sent the demo to Elektra Records, and they passed on it.

That rejection was a drag. So all along the way, we fought and fought like a salmon swimming upstream to get signed. But then once we got signed, we got sent to the backend of a whole other queue. Now we're on the backend of the queue of all the other bands who got signed.

So now what? Now you're in a situation where you're jockeying for position. Doug: Now Mick has his stamp on it, he was trying to get Living Colour a record deal. Now you gotta remember, at this time there was tension between Mick and Keith Richards in the Stones camp. There was almost like this competition between the two of them back then. So before Vivid was released, there was a period where Mick was shopping the demo. And he couldn't get anybody to bite it for a while, and he was pissed.

This went on for months, maybe like a half-a-year. More lyrics from the album. Vivid Jun 15th Exclusive offer Get up to 3 months of free music.
