"Save the World" - Bloc Party @ Live Earth London (CRED)
Bloc Party @ Live Earth

The most bizzare thing about the Bad Brains show on the boat was before the show when HR was just sort walking around by himself with his sunglasses on - looking extremely chill, and nobody was talking to him - at least when I saw him. He apparently did speak to at least one person before the show though, and it was DL host Sara Schaefer. AOL has the must-see video where they talk about the new album, and even sick Morrissey's favorite artist (and Gogol Bordello collaborator) Madonna. Keep the video running for a cool in-studio performance by Bloc Party that comes up right after Bad Brains. Updated Bloc Party tour dates below....

What accent is HR using? It sounds like a mix between a British accent and American Accent. Either way HR hasn't seemed so sane since 1989. The only difference is that in 1989 he was railing against spikes and bubbles. Now he is just acting like a clown. I like how he looks to the other guys for permission to speak.

Last I checked, HR was born in the UK and is of Jamaican descent. His accent probably changes depending on the audience. This is quite normal for people who were born during or immediately following the colonial era. What were you expecting him to sound like "Yo yo yo yo" ?

That was a great Bad Brains interview-H.R. from bad ass mother fucker in the 80's to endearing cute talking rasta man in 2007. Haaaa!!! I love it. Bad Brains are still the kings, and that show ROCKED! Contrary to popular belief there were plenty of great views. I had no prob moving around and finding good spots right in front of the stage. I had a Fuckin' blast!
