Belouis Some and 'Imagination'? Don't remember much else of his after that.

Despite their first album being pretty patchy (I've always hated 'Jump Around', 'Put Your Head Out' is the best track on that LP), they released an excellent second album entitled "Same As It Ever Was", easily their best work, a bit of a lost classic in my eyes. Pity Everlast had to go all 'acoustic' after the interesting but not fantastic 3rd album.

Interesting fact about him: he's now a porn film director.

The advert for the first Charles & Eddie album always amused me. Paul Gambacinni saying "At last an album with more than one great song"... and they played clips from two different tracks. Yeah, right.

Interesting stuff! I like nuggets of pointless info like this.

Is he a 'respected' porno director or just outputting amateur gonzo mash-type sh!t?

DJ Yella from NWA, the least interesting one, he became quite successful within that field, yet the field was quite small.
