Thoughts On The Dead

Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To


Commentator Dead_Drift hips us all to this 1962 Playboy interview with Mr. Davis in which he:

  • Says the word “negro” a million fucking times.
  • Also says the word “Oriental” quite a bit.
  • Gets mad at the insinuation that he might not be the greatest trumpet player that ever lived.
  • Complains about literally the exact same bullshit that black folks are still dealing with today.
  • Doesn’t stab his interlocutor when asked the question: “Have you always been so sensitive about being a negro?”
