Boogie and the Beast: Mike D, MCA and King Ad-Rock on U2, Aunt Bea and the Ozone

Danny (Shredder) Weizmann, LA Weekly, 7 September 1989

"REAL LIFE is much stranger than fiction, man." Mike D speaks from the turntables in the den of King Ad-Rock's Hollywood apartment. He haphazardly scratches a reggae dub record, repeating the same section over and over. "Jamaica, Jamaica...J-J-Jamaica, Jamaica...Jamai-ca, Ja-mai-ca...," the record blurts over the loudspeakers. "Much stranger than fiction."
