On this Six-Pack episode, Craig Cohen of The Tricorder Transmissions and Richie Wagner of Audiobiography join Eric to remember the wonderfully talented Aaliyah for a special Six-Pack. Can you believe it’s been over 18 years since this uber-talented, smooth singing, graceful, R&B angel left us? Aaliyah rose to prominence quickly and scored quite a slew of unforgettable hit singles, records, soundtrack and movie appearances, and awards. She was clearly destined for even more… imagine where she’d be today if not for that fateful accident that claimed her life. We speculate and celebrate her life and work through some of her classic singles and deeper cuts.
So sit back and discover or rediscover the soulful brilliance of Ms Aaliyah Haughton.
Four brilliant songwriters, three incredible lead singers, dozens of unique, chart-topping hits, millions of albums and tickets sold, three co-hosts, six songs, one six pack, and infinite fun!
We’ve got some deep cuts, we’ve got some hits, we’ve got some solo tracks, and we’ve got lots of factoids and laughs along the way.
So get on your bikes and ride… and take us to the room where the green’s all green and from what we’ve seen, it’s hot, it’s mean.. join us as we dim the lights and sing songs full of sad things and discover or rediscover some rock and roll gems from Queen!
