Youtube Gems: Incubus

Incubus is one of the best new bands of the last few years, in my opinion. A very versatile lead singer with inventive musicians behind him and an ethos that takes inspiration from a wide variety of musical styles makes for a fascinating mix. A few live gems below the fold.

Last but absolutely not least, here is an incredible 17 minute clip of Incubus doing Stellar, then being joined by Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers of The Police for a medley of both band’s songs:
