Sorry for the bad pun but the title refers to, in case you haven’t seen it, a recent commercial featuring my excerpt for today…from the book…
# xxiv…RockStar Mayhem Highlights…
One of the acts that I had seen in the summer of 2014 was RockStar Mayhem, which was further punctuated by the fact that I was able to witness Ice-T, who was born on this date, February 16th, 1958…as he performed with his rap/metal band Body Count. As I witnessed the controversy that surrounded their first album (the critically denounced “Cop Killer”, which was an awesome album) when it was released, it made me want more.
Due to his acting career on “Law & Order: SVU”, however, a follow-up would not be seen until much later. It was during this renaissance that I was able to witness their awe-inspiring performances live…at RockStar Mayhem. Ice-T certainly showed this aspiring writer that it’s really never too late to do what you love, as his performance was clearly on my Top 5 favorites of that show.
His continued relevancy with the general population is a testament to his stamina in an industry (he is a former rapper, you recall) that was (and still is) highly volatile…which is why he’s earned his spot here. Many happy more, Mr. Ice-T!
