Living Colour Treads Conceptual Ground with The Chair in the Doorway
By BRIAN HEATON
When musicians call their latest albums "the best" they have ever done, it typically comes across as a contrived marketing and sales pitch. But there are exceptions, including when the words were used by Living Colour frontman Corey Glover to describe the band's fifth record, The Chair in the Doorway.
Glover explained that unlike previous albums, The Chair in the Doorway is conceptual, working off the theme of obstacles in life and how people have a choice to walk through the proverbial chair in the doorway, or go around it. It was a thought he and guitarist Vernon Reid had kicked around in the past and the concept was a huge source of inspiration for the singer.
