For back up I have a Marshall DSL 50.
Joey I play through an Ibanez half stack and on a B.C. Rich Kerry King Signature guitar.
Javier Dead Skin Mask seems like it has been together for years. Did all of you grow up together in high school bands?
DannyM No we didn’t. I have known Mykill for less than a year. I answered and ad in a local magazine that said "SLAYER SLAYER SLAYER !!! Can you play their music? Prove it. No age, race or gender restrictions. If you have skill, you have job". I contacted him, sent him some home made Slayer recordings that I had made and set up a time to go and meet and jam with him. That laid foundation for Dead Skin Mask.
Joey answered an ad on a flyer that I hung at a music store when we were looking for a guitarist. Mykill already knew Romeo. I think they were in a previous band together.
Javier How long have you been with dsm?
Joey For about 5 months.
Javier You really do a good job, it seems your heart is in it. Keep playing and keep bringing fans an excellent tribute. There are too many bad bands giving tributes a bad rap. Slayer tributes are popping up fast, hopefully they(all poor tributes) won't sway people from going to see you guys. Thanks for your time!
Joey Thanks for showing up at show and thanks for taking time to chat.
DannyM No, Thank you Javier. I really enjoyed questions. I love talking about amps, guitars, tone, and Slayer music.
Best Regards, DannyM
