I saw tried to see them at CBs when they were doing those save CBs shows. They took over 3 hours to come on after the opening acts had cleaned up and when they came on, HR was fucking wasted. He had a motorcycle helmet on and was singing with the mic under the lip of the helmet. It sounded horrible.

When people started slamming during the fast songs, they would stop playing and say some Jah inspired bullshit like, "Brothers and sisters, how can we play if you're gonna hurt each other?!"

Don't get me wrong. I like BB just as much as the Beastie Boys and apparently Madonna, but they sucked hard when I saw them.

Also, they're apparently not cool with the buttsechs. Lame.

i recall stories of members of the big boys and mdc not being too happy about that fact either after "don't blow no bubbles"

Looks like the bassist owned up to the ignorance of that: http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/interviews/interviews/darryl_jenifer_of_bad_brains_i_want_to_be_the_soldier_of_my_music.html

That's nice to see. A lot of folks grew up with some heinous attitudes about sexuality, race, etc.

I know I did and I'm glad there's no public record of it.
