you probably have noticed by now how gaga i was over (and still am, only a bit toned down!) brandon boyd, dropping references about him on this humble blog here + there, even posting my letter for him once. he’s actually my inspiration to sort of circumvent the tides in my life + channel negative thoughts + energies to positive ones, and the effect has made a profound change in my life since then. in that i am ever grateful to him.
“I’ll make music, whether or not anyone is listening, for the rest of my life. It’s a natural form of expression for me, the same way I draw and write and sing.”
brandon cornelius boyd, frontman/vocals/percussion of my all-time fave band, incubus, was born on february 16, 1976. yes, he celebrated his 35th just a few days back (so this is a sort of belated birthday greeting post☺) and just came out with his solo efforts, the wild trapeze, july of 2010. one of my faves from that album is this song, runaway train (lyrics here). the album, as expected will remind you so much of his band and will make you long for a new incubus album even more. but the boys are currently working on that so hold on to your seats and let us all wait in anticipation.
