Amen, Brother was a little-known B-side released in 1969. Barely noticed at the time, its drum solo has been hugely influential, appearing in different forms in more than 1,500 other songs - but the band behind it never made any money from it. "It felt like plagiarism and I felt ripped off and raped," says Richard L Spencer, lead singer of The Winstons - the band that recorded the original track. I come from an era where you didn't steal people's ideas. It can be heard, in a slightly slowed-down version, on the song I Desire, from the 1986 debut album of New York rap group Salt-N-Pepa. A few years later it appeared on Wordz of Wisdom by another New York duo known as 3rd Bass. So why did these six seconds from 1969 become so popular? "There's something about the groove of that break and especially the way people chop it up of course," says Harrison.
Amen & Amen is about the vigorous fight to reveal the grandeur, magnificence and splendor of craftsmanship. Avoiding the temptations of fear, concession and competition through the free exercise of courage and creativity. Thankful, yet unsatisfied with things as they are, we allow imagination to show us how to manage that which can not be created or destroyed, only fashioned and amended into handiwork the world has never seen.
Yesterday marked the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. Forty years ago mission commander Neil A. Armstrong and lunar module pilot Edwin Eugene 'Buzz' Aldrin, Jr. walked on the moon while command module pilot Michael Collins orbited above. I was at a Little League party, watching the moon landing after our last game of the season. There was a 7 Eleven across the street, so the mom got all of us Coke slurpees, which had just been invented recently. I sat there watching Neil Armstrong take the first steps on the moon while I took a taste of my first Coke slurpee. I remember thinking how great it is to be American.

That’s also why some listeners have taken offense, citing his cartoonish portrayal of black culture as thoughtless, causing the uproar that led to the name change. Brian says now he regrets going by Chigga, telling The New Yorker: I want to write from my own experience. On his first full-length project, Amen, Rich Brian makes amends by simply being himself, playing up his bizarre origin story.
