Fantastic Negrito On Studio Magic, Chris Cornell, "Dark Windows" & More
Equal parts rootsy bluesman and something from another time and planet, GRAMMY-winning singer/songwriter Fantastic Negrito returned earlier this year with his second full-length album, Please Don't Be Dead. The album is a wild ride from start to finish, showing the artist's many sides, talents and truths.
We caught up with the Bay Area artist to ask about his new album, hear how "Dark Shadows" came together in the wake of the death of his friend, Chris Cornell, and what he has done with the GRAMMY he won for Best Contemporary Blues Album at the 59th GRAMMY Awards for The Last Days Of Oakland.
