The Black Eyed Peas: The Beginning

" is the co-founder and creative force behind dance and hip hop juggernauts The Black Eyed Peas. To date, the band has sold an estimated 27 million albums worldwide, plus an additional 20 million singles. With the Peas' new album, The Beginning, set to hit stores worldwide, the enigmatic songwriter and I caught up to talk a little music, live performing, and politics. ... SS: With the 'Time of my Life' lyric and melody being the anchor of your Dirty Bit single, I'm guessing you were a fan of the old Bill Medley / Jennifer Warnes song. w: Just the chorus. I didn't like the verses. (laughs) ... We were on tour when we recorded this record, so our studio was our hotel room. We had a traveling studio: laptops, microphones, etc... So we recorded as we toured. And every night after the Black Eyed Peas shows, I'd do an underground DJ set and play some new beats in front of different audiences" (Steven Shehori, "A Conversation with of the Black Eyed Peas," Huffington Post, 11/26/10).
