Chuck Billy of Testament

@testament Chuck turns 52 today. He was a mere 50 years old when I took today’s photo in 2012.

Happy birthday to Alex Skolnick!

Testament’s Chuck Billy

Testament kicked off their headlining tour (Dark Roots of Thrash Tour) last night in San Francisco. Also on the bill are Overkill, Flotsam and Jetsam, and 4ARM. Testament will wrap up the U.S. portion of the tour in Sacramento at the Ace of Spades, where I took today’s photo last year, on February 28.

Gene Hoglan (aka Pickles)

The first time I heard the drummer Gene Hoglan was back in 1989. The drumming on Dark Angel’s “Leave Scars” blew me away. Since then he has become one of the most prolific drummers in the business with more than 30 albums to his credit including appearing on releases by Death, Strapping Young Lad / Devin Townsend, Dethklok, and now Testament. Kids these days hear Gene Hoglan’s drums (not voice) when they see Pickles on Metalocalypse.

The first time I saw Hoglan in person was walking down the street in broad daylight in Sacramento on my way to this show. I knew who he was, but this was not how I wanted to see such a legend. I prefer today’s photo which puts him back into his proper place–somewhat hidden and fairly mysterious behind his drum kit.
