Public Enemy

Celebrating 20 years together, Chuck, Flav and Griff — along with DJ Lord, the S1Ws and a trio of backing musicians — still rock a wicked live show. Oddly, Flavor of Love has thrust PE’s hype man into the spotlight with fans arriving in Flav’s familiar clock’n’cap combo. The sound system sucked —bass overpowered the other instruments and Chuck’s vocals were often muffled — but, despite their advancing years, the trio ran, jumped and did punishing push-ups on stage throughout a one-hour-plus set of their greatest hits. The Flav/Griff interlude was a bit long, but Public Enemy should not be missed.
