About five weeks ago (or 37 seconds, depending on how you’re counting), I posted a Del the Funkee Homosapien collaboration with Dinosaur Jr. and included video from the one and only live performance of that track. As it turned out, one of the guest musicians in that performance, himself a big rock star, managed to find the page and throw a link to it up on Facebook. In the course of one day, the lifetime traffic for the site nearly doubled and that post is still the single most-viewed page on Corsairs Affairs, surpassing even the home page!
Before Del himself could be invited to work on the Judgment Night soundtrack and have the cachet to invite such talent to perform with him, he too had to make a name for himself in the music world. Being Ice Cube’s cousin didn’t hurt, but Del clearly had plenty of talent to make it on his own. His debut album, I Wish My Brother George Was Here was one of my favorites growing up and it featured a couple standout tracks with “Mistadobalina” and “Dr. Bombay.”
I don’t anticipate that this post will get the traffic that the first Del-related post got, but if some big rock star, or perhaps the rock star’s brother George – wants to spread the word about the artist or about “Dr. Bombay”, I wouldn’t blame them.
