Meeting Tone Loc, Bringing Up ‘Ferngully’
Boise Music Festival had all kinds of characters. Tone Loc was one for sure and a crowd favorite.
I will be honest, I was most excited about Tone Loc. Bringing back my youth and love for a few awesome movies.
"Wild Thing' and 'Funky Cold Medina' are the songs most people know he also busted out some covers like 'Gin and Juice'. When we met him and when we are onstage I had to bring it up... Ferngully! He was the lizard and had that catchy song " If I'm Gonna Eat Somebody". He chuckled and laughed, I am sure that is not everyone's favorite and probably not his. He was super nice, and very pleasing to the crowd and fans.
He was also in another great movie that I forget, and that's 'Heat' with Val Kilmer, Al Pacino and Robert De Niro. A small part but love looking up things you have seen celebrities in that you met.
I wish I would have got to ask Tone what working with Jim Carrey was like.
