“Ahh, that sweet sweet sound of roaring chords, crunchy riffs and catchy licks.
How does that not put a smile on your face?”
Although classically trained when he was a little kid, as a teenager Skralan became hooked on the bands that ruled LA’s Sunset Strip and is still smitten to this day.
Often staying late after jazz class to ask the guitar teacher about the techniques used in screaming solo’s, or how to tackle that really fast bit in such and such song.
He really looked up to the greats like: Whitesnake, Kiss, Ratt, Poison, Motley Crue, Aerosmith, Van Halen, Guns ’n Roses and many many more! These bands were, and still are, some of the motivators for him to pick up the guitar every day.
Skralan also really appreciates the 80’s best and brightest female offerings such as: Lita Ford, Vixen, Joan Jett and Lee Aaron for their powerful voices and all-out amazing guitar chops, it isn’t all about men with long hair in glittery spandex.
So, come out to a show and let’s smile along to the music together.
