RIP Rodney King

In 2009 I spent an hour on the phone with the late Rodney King doing an interview for LAist

That chat was one I’ll never forget. The peace and the clarity with which he spoke of The Beating was both powerful and spooky.  During that hour, King spoke of his alcoholism: “It’s a fight everyday. Your disease will creep on you.” 

Unfortunately, he was right.
