    Does anybody know what came of him? He was AWESOME. I played a show with Corey Glover's new band the other night, and I almost asked him, but he didn't exactly seem like an approachable guy. A lot shorter than I expected too. Man, I loved that band.

    Yeah, I loved them too! Muzz's tone and general style really suited that band more than Doug Wimbish does, IMO....even though I like Wimbish' approach in general. With all that noise that Vernon Reid made, LC needed a bassist that held that bottom and groove down. I think I read somewhere that Muzz was invovled in some Smuv Jazz type stuff or something. I hope that's wrong, though...

    I love Living Colour too. I wish that they had never broken up. Muzz is an awesome bassist. I'm surprised that he hasn't popped up somewhere and we have just missed him. I Hope that he will surface again and soon.

    Hey, if you go to www.allmusic.com and type in "Muzz Skillings," you will get a couple of things he has done since Living Color. Namely, a recent album with Wilson Pickett.

    Cool bassmonkeee! Nice site, though it has me in the "short attention span theatre" mode, if you know what I mean...click click click, it's real easy man... I have heard of Wilson Pickett before, but not sure I know the music...any tunes you could suggest?

    Wow. Looks like I started asking questions about Living Colour, just in time to find out there is a reunion tour this summer...but with Doug Wimbish, not that I am complaining about Doug Wimbish (cmon, lets be real here). I still miss Muzz, though.
    Anyway, check out the site. There is an hour long video stream of the first reunion show they played on corey glovers site, the link is on that first page above...
     
  7. Have you ever heard "Trippy notes for Bass" by Doug, pretty cool disk, with the typical DW
