Bokeem Woodbine... rock star?

Y’all know I like it when famous actors be singing and shit, right? I’ve shared with you the musical stylings of Billy Bob Thornton, Robert Downey, Jr., Steven Seagal and others.

Well... I just found out that Bokeem Woodbine fronts a hard-rock band called 13 Purple Dragons.

Below is a clip from a Hollywood gig 10 months ago. And because the song is titled “Don’t Hate,” I shan’t tell you what I think of Mr. Woodbine as a musical talent. (I dug him in “The Big Hit,” though.)

As Common once said... "if I don't like it, I don't like it, that don't mean that I'm hatin'"

"Rock star?" I had no idea.

He's no Ernie Isley, but at least he didn't treat his guitar like an accessory/prop. That's more than I can say for this actor.

Well, he can play the guitar.

in the future could you please put a warning, a spoiler, if you will, indicating it's Bokeem Woodbine!! He's hard to look at even in a still image *shivering*

"Cain't get right" doesn't sound too bad, actually.

Invisible Woman said...

haha. i just posted about how i love him now, so no hate here :-)

he seems to be a lot more interesting than he appears to be at first...someone said he went to a posh school, and gave me a video link about him speaking pretty articulately about Katrina. who knew?

^ Remember when he played a rapist doctor on "City of Angels"?

He'll always be the thug in TLC's "Waterfalls" video to me.

I can't hate. I love the way his mind works. He is pure comedy. Thx to Invisible Woman, I read his twitter page.
