Vernon Reid

Lead guitarist of Living Color and co-founder from the Dark Rock and roll Coalition who did too much to shatter the colour hurdle in mainstream rock and roll music. He went to the esteemed Brooklyn Technical SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL and then NY School. He was positioned #66 over the 100 Greatest Guitarists ever list by Rolling Rock. His parents are of Caribbean history, but he was raised in NEW YORK. Mick Jagger was therefore impressed with In Living Color’s functionality at CBGB that he asked the group to lay out a monitor for his record.
