"Watchin' O.J. Simpson on the TV Blues"

   FRIDAY, JUNE 15, 1994 

O.J. SIMPSON ARRESTED FOR 

TWO BRUTAL MURDERS 

 

June 13, 1994, another shocking murder. Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Lyle Goldman were found dead in a pool of blood in front of Nicole's Brentwood condo. But the real shock came on June, 15, when O.J. Simpson was charged with the brutal double homicides. America's new fixation had begun.

 

After leaving a "suicide note" which was read publicly, O.J. lead LAPD on a pursuit that was seen by the entire country. Millions watched as O.J. armed with a revolver, and A.J. Cowlings armed with a cellular phone, drove a white Bronco across the television screens of America. From that point on the O.J. Simpson story dominated everything. 

 

"Watchin' O.J. Simpson on the TV Blues", was the final song  from my album, Hard Times: Headlines From The Great Recession – a concept album dramatizing news events from the Gulf War to the 1994 mid-term elections. O.J. was eventually found not guilty in one of America's most controversial court decisions. However, he was later found guilty in a civil trial. Agree or disagree with the verdict, no one will soon forget one of the most infamous murder cases in American history.
