Normal Alex Skolnick
alexskolnick The blues came to NYC last night. How did I not know the name Tinsley Ellis? Do you? If not, find out. My friend Mike Zito was ridiculous as always & special guest Popa Chubby joined in. These guys may not get the attention they deserve, but it is truly deserved, whether received or not. Good to hear good blues/rock being kept alive. 1mon
  •   bobtyrrell Right on! Those guys are great... 1mon
  •   pierce628 I was supposed to go to a Tinsley Ellis show a few years ago in SoCal but the show was cancelled due to reports of West Nile being around where the concert was being held lol 1mon

alexskolnick #MillionsMarchNYC Surreal: Crowds as far as eye can see, historic day, folks trying 2 make a difference. Meanwhile, Drunken Santas appear, mid pub crawl (Santa Con) as police watch over w good energy - despite some less than flattering signs and chants - mingling w protesters like it's the Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade (a reminder that a majority of cops deserve respect and do not represent the ones who are the subject of this protest). 1mon
  •   thatawfuldad You're a good soul Mr Skolnick!! 1mon
  •   saam_svart 1mon
  •   kpip275 You said it 1mon
  •   kinger462 Nice one Alex! 1mon
  •   jess137613 Thank you Alex. 1mon
  •   basseurope You should come to Europe and then you will see what's the police brutality.... That's nothing in United States of America.... In Europe please have bigger authorizations so they are much aggressive and they can bring you in only on suspicion 1mon
  •   undercovermothergold Agreed 1mon
  •   krummerhund Police brutality in Europe? Not in Germany. 2d

alexskolnick Arrived early at tonight's gig, (3 gtr acoustic improv Skolnick/Getter/Armold) 8:30pm. Turns out the venue is a Lower East Side apt filled w books, albums, paintings, instruments & open 2 public. Russian classical program right now (killing on Mussorgsky). Much about NYC 2 drive u nuts but when it comes 2 arts, things like this make it all worthwhile. The Spectrum 121 Ludlow 1mon

  •   hunter_c_ward His shirt is spot on. Everything is genre'd now. Metal isn't metal anymore. It's post hardcore, death core, grind, post-thrash dance, Technical Hardcore, it's all the same, man. Metal is metal. 2mon
  •   k_sweeten Maybe you can take over for Chris in megadeth..?..?.;D 2mon
  •   firelightsranch @alexskolnick two of my favorite people.. Miss you guys 2mon

alexskolnick Had a wonderful Planetary Coalition album release show last night, despite bone-chilling temperatures! Fittingly on the day we 1st played live, there was record heat (6/22/12). First track on the album "Island in the Sky" is about climate change. Nearly half of the albums 27 musicians were there last night, and the response to the album has been overwhelming (in the best way). Info: www.planetarycoalition.com 2mon
  •   grngirl333 Absolutely beautiful music ;) 2mon
  •   firelightsranch Bravo 2mon
  •   heartplexus Congrats! The album is fantastic! I love the variety of styles and the excellence of it. 2mon

alexskolnick Duane Allman's Gold Top, heard on the original "Layla," (Derek & the Dominoes), backstage at Beacon Theater just after being played onstage by Derek Trucks (pictured in back). Incredible night hearing & hanging w the Allman Bros. A jam w yours truly & others was discussed, curtailed by a last minute "no guests for final shows" rule (damn, but totally makes sense). Gig was off the charts! Their mgmt very strict about no pics backstage but we snuck this one! I was amazed at the thin neck, ease with which it plays and how well it's aged (feels like it's from the 90s not the 60s). #Inspired 3mon

alexskolnick Beacon Theater on fire w The Allman Bros. My 1st time (& sadly, last, but so glad I caught 'em). No gimmicks needed! 3mon
  •   firelightsranch Sweet 3mon
  •   stevako Derek is a beast 3mon
  •   fiberlungs Was there last night... Sad to see them go... 3mon
  •   pierce628 Derek playing a les paul! Thats weird to see lol 3mon
  •   alexskolnick @pierce628 that's Duane's Les Paul, the one he played on Layla. More on that soon... 3mon
  •   pierce628 @alexskolnick wow cant wait to hear the story behind it! I remember at NAMM 2012 they had the secret gibson booth with a duane allman replica les paul and i was afraid to touch it! $11,000 for the replica. I couldnt imagine playing Duane's.. what a dream come true it mustve been for Derek. Seen him live twice! Always amazing. 3mon
