Burn at CBGB, NYC, 10/14/1990

Seeing these Burn videos on YouTube have really brought back a lot of memories. These guys were playing a ton of the shows I was going to around 1990 and although I wasn’t at this particular show at CB’s, so many of the Burn shows I saw were a lot like this. Intense, scary, crazy, new, original, unique, powerful, heavy, violent, are just a few words that come to mind. They were easily one of my favorite bands of that era and to this day. And no doubt, Chaka was one of the greatest frontmen. Dude had so much energy and raised the bar so high for all frontmen of that time period. Amazing stuff and people really connected with it all… I know I certainly did. -Tim DCXX
