Terence_Trent_D'Arby

So I was at "Music & Me" class with Emil and Karen. Karen's my wife and Emil's our 15 1/2 month old son. And Terence Trent D'Arby was playing, on the cd player.

thing is -- I mummbled every word and the teacher was all, "How do you know every word?"

Well, Terence Trent D'Arby was really big for me. Freshman year of college. Saw him on Saturday Night Live, live at the studio -- thanks David Hantman. And at the Beacon Theater, or was it called s'em else?...I think it was the Beacon.

Anyone who knows nyc of the late 80's remember the venue of 12th or 13th street, what was 'tween Fourth and Third? It was the same year I saw Dwight Yoakam and Mötörhead. I think I saw Hüsker Dü, for the second time there -- seein' HüDü for the first time in DC was one of my biggest High School experiences.

Thing is that then the "Music and Me" teacher asked if I had any idea what happened to Terence Trent D'Arby. mmm. TTD was big for me. Where are they now? He is now Sananda Maitreya, and married to come kinda beautiful lady from Italy and they're settled in Munich.

Oh, and P.S.: Thu. May 27.1999 9:11 AM EDT
SYDNEY, Australia -- American R&B singer Terence Trent D'Arby will take the late Michael Hutchence's place as INXS's singer at the official opening of Sydney Stadium on June 12, the band announced Thursday (May 27).

D'Arby will join brothers John, Tim and Andrew Farriss, Kirk Pengilly and Garry Beers in what will be INXS's second public performance since Hutchence committed suicide on Nov. 22, 1997.

"This is an INXS show and Terence is merely lending us his vocal cords," guitarist Tim Farriss said at a press conference.
