Even before forming the pioneering, Grammy winning, platinum selling rock band Living Colour, Corey’s undeniable talent as a personality and artist was brought to the attention of director Oliver Stone. The famed moviemaker cast Corey in his Vietnam epic, Platoon. Corey has also appeared in the films The Keeper, Reunion 81, and Loose Women.
As a founding member of Living Colour, Corey helped prove that not only could black guys kick out the jams, but that they could be embraced by a vast expanse of fans. Living Colour earned numerous industry awards including back-to-back Grammys for Best Hard Rock Performance of 1989 (Cult of Personality) and 1990 (Time’s Up) and emerged as one of the most influential rock acts of all time: regularly selling out arenas and selling millions of albums.
