He's Black Irish as the day is long.
Pale skin and dark hair - like me and most of my 7 sisters.
Spanish blood in Ireland or something like that.
And if any of y'all knew where he came from - his neighborhood - ya might give him (not his music, just him) a little credit.
To say it's tough and messed-up doesn't go a third of the way toward describing it.
We were eating at Lupita's down there a couple weekends ago (tacos and tamales are the bomb) and a whole gang (a gang gang) walked in.
I see my wife look up but I knew it was fine because they had a couple little kids with them.
