Vernon Reid is a Grammy award-winning musician and songwriter, and a founding member of the band Living Colour. He was also named by Rolling Stone magazine as one of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time. But for "8Track," Vernon joined us back in April as DJ, and the timing and the times led him to focus his songs on recovery and struggle.
