  •   d_gargs @jetjock015 thanks for that info. Hmm. I know they've been touring a lot the last few years. It will be interesting to see how they gig once they make the next album. 5d

alexskolnick Great times on the @ShipRocked cruise! Many more pics/vids to shared in the future but for now... 2 highlights (not only of the week but of my career!): The 1st with @MetalAllegiance, the all- star group I'm proud 2 be a part of. Our 1st set included the entire debut VH album in its entirety (which explains the previous posts). To say this was a challenge to pull off on guitar is to understate. Adding to the excitement (and yes, a bit of pressure), bass on first few tracks played by none other than Wolfgang Van Halen! From the first note he played, there is no question that this is a true Van Halen (say what you will about classic vs current line ups, this kid inspires the elder VH's to get off their butts, hit the road and do what they do; hearing Wolf up close, it all makes sense). I became a lead guitarist solely because of hearing VH's album as a kid, so to get a big hug and thumbs up from him (after having the gal to perform "Eruption" in front of him next to me and thousands watching - with full '78 wardrobe & striped guitar) was hard not to feel a bit emotional. The next night, still high from the VH experience, I was invited to sit in with @LivingColour. This is a band I've not only enjoyed for years but am still inspired by, blending shredding jazz inspired hard rock guitar with syncopated drums, slamming bass and soulful vocals. We paid tribute to two influences, Jack Bruce & Jimi Hendrix. Also had great hang with Wolf's other band Tremonti who can really play (and shouldn't be judged by Creed alone) and @missscabbia of Lacuna Coil who joined us for first time. Again, much more to share soon! 3w

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. 2mon
  •   bobtyrrell Right on! Those guys are great... 2mon
  •   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 2mon

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). 3mon
