Saw a couple good Coolie stories but this one is very good

Remember when Coolio did a gig in Preston, ran into a group of random students outside afterwards and went back to their place, where he made Caprese Salad, Chicken á la Daaaamn and Peach Crumble, and they jammed Gangster's Paradise. What a guy.

There is a picture of him cooking in the thread

and here is a link to the entire video

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hvMKgMZsfDM

this ones is also pretty good...

Both the initial post with the video and the a clarification on the legend...

"RIP Coolio. Never forget his appearance on Irish daytime chatshow Open House, who, legend has it, booked him by mistake. They hadn't arranged backing dancers, so he made the middle-age production crew dress up and do it instead. Best TV ever.'

"Correction from replies “I was part of the production team on this. #Coolio was NOT booked by mistake. But the producer misheard at a meeting and thought we'd booked Julio (Iglesias). Upon being set straight he uttered the immortal words: "Coolio? Who the f**k is Coolio?"

Returned to the ancestors.

Sacheen Littlefeather, who gave Marlon Brando's Oscar rejection speech, dies at 75

ICON. QUEEN. LEGEND. FOREVER.

I saw one show at Lincoln. Incredible. Her brother, was "interesting."

His next comment will be #27,000. I think he's planning something epic.

Hadn't thought of any such thing before now, but now that you've mentioned it, convenient benches for sitting and taking a load off one's orthopedic-shoe-supported feet seems very on-brand for Frank Turner fans.

Bummer…I was really into her music in the aughts…sort of burnt out on her and country in general (other than Willie!)

But independent of her music she really was an icon and someone who really was ahead of her time on women’s issues in the ass backwards American south. 

Probably one of the last links to her very good friend Patsy Cline. It’s amazing that Patsy died over 60 years ago…

I saw Loretta in Winchester (I believe the birthplace of Patsy which is why she was playing there) and it was great..then I saw her at the 930 and I felt like she was a bit past it but she performed that one song from van Lear rose everyone loves..I think it’s a duet with Jack white

I bought an autographed cookbook at her show in Winchester
