It’s that time again… Time for another Guest Guitar Player video!!
This one features Matt Skversky on guitar. I was really happy I was able to shoot this video with Matt… First of all… he picked a GREAT song!! (more about that in a second) Second of all, I was able to squeeze this in before Matt left L.A. for good, and I was really happy that we were able to make it happen!

Matt was only in LA for a short time, but he quickly got involved with our little circle of musicians and made his mark playing bass for The Cold Chills while he was here. We are *so* going to miss him!

The song he chose was Amy Winehouse’s “Back to Black” … I love this song. This was the song that made me realize what a great songwriter she was… like, next-level…she stopped me in my tracks with lines like …

“Life is like a pipe…and I’m a tiny penny rolling up the walls inside…”

Really, Amy!? you’re killing me… She had this way of getting you inside her head and somehow making you understand… She had a perfect balance of blunt realism and poeticism that I always loved… so sad that she’s gone.

So, this is our take on a great tune… Thanks for shooting this with me, Matt!!! And as always, special thanks to Rob Gaudet for shooting and editing this video!!!
