This was another amazing performance with the Don Was Detroit All-Star Revue. The theme in 2018 was Detroit Rocks, and I chose two classic songs from two seminal Detroit Black rock bands. “Good To Your Earhole” by Funkadelic is a staple of my live sets. It’s the ultimate party starter. “Rock ‘n’ Roll Victim” by Death was a song I had never performed before, but it was an important tribute to one of the world’s first proto punk bands.
