Ice-T: 'I never eat before a show after gumbo disaster'

Ice-T was put off eating before performing after a particularly horrific incident involving gumbo.

The 58-year-old musician and actor will be hitting the road later this year (16) with his band Body Count. While he makes sure he is prepared before taking to the stage, he always performs with an empty stomach, recalling one nasty situation during an interview on Late Night With Seth Meyers on Monday (19Sep16).

"I don’t eat before shows. I had a bad incident one time, I was at Lollapalooza back in the day and this lady served us gumbo (a fish stew popular in Louisiana) during lunch and I went on stage, in front of like 20,000 people, with full blown diarrhoea," he laughed.

"So imagine standing on stage, holding your butt cheeks, and you’re trying to tell people to go crazy like, ‘(strained voice) Oh yeah, alright!’ And when the show was over, one fart would have been disaster. Never again, so I don’t eat right before a show ever!"

Ice-T has become more famous for his recurring role in Law & Order: Special Victims Unit than his music over the past few years. But he is looking forward to getting back to his roots when Body Count's tour kicks off, and has upped his exercise regime in preparation.

"I mean, you’ve just got to have your cardio up and it’s just like Broadway - once you get past that first night on tour it just falls in place, you know," he smiled. "But the crowd, you get the energy, you just go out there and do what you do."

Body Count are also currently working on their upcoming album Bloodlust, for which they have once again joined forces with producer Will Putney.

The chance to team up with Putney again was too good an opportunity to pass up, with Ice-T admitting in a recent interview: "Will Putney is like a member of the band and has an excellent ear. He’s a great producer because he captures the true essence of our band’s sound. Once we are done writing the song it’s his job to step in and make it sound better. He helps move the record in the right direction."
