Skerik Justifies His Pod

You know you’ve always wondered what’s on Skerik’s iPod. Here’s your answer.

Last week the avant-jam saxophonist came to Stranger HQ where I grilled him on the contents of his iPod. Normally, victims are demanded to justify the embarrassing selections they harbor; Skerik’s collection, however, was bulletproof. Totally tasteful, full of weird world music, death metal, and classic jazz, his iPod was, not surprisingly, intriguing. He had a hilarious story about the William Shatner album involving himself and noted saxophonist Bill Clinton and was even able to fully justify his inclusion of ZZ Top. I was still feeling run down after SXSW so I was glad that Skerik really got into the whole thing and ran with it.

Enjoy.

Of course he can justify the ZZ Top, the challenge is justifying NOT having the ZZ Top.

I can see if your only exposure is the crap off Eliminator, but Tres Hombres? That is a kick ass record.

What is this Jambands.com? Zwickel's from San Francisco, I guess he's a grateful dead fan. Jeesh, a few years late and wrong city. Skerik is awesome, let's just hope we aren't going to be seeing articles on Motet, STS9 and a Stranger sponsored Jam Cruise. Someone take Zwickel to a Spits show, fast!
