Skillet 155x114Here's a story for ya that comes from my pre-Rock Father days: A decade ago, I was nearing the end of my run at what was perhaps my last "normal" job - as Store Manager of a Sam Goody Record Store - a job that I fortunately left prior to watching the music industry as we knew it completely collapse. While I was still there, a band that was previously from the South somehow wound up in Kenosha, Wisconsin... and subsequently became occasional shoppers at my store (not far from there, in Gurnee, Illinois). That band was SKILLET, and the day that COLLIDE was released, the band stopped in to buy some copies first-hand - an old tradition of sorts for bands on release day. So here we are a decade later, and SKILLET is pretty much huge - having traveled the world, and racking up over 4 million fans on facebook. Now, the folks at Total Assault have partnered with The Rock Father and a few other upstanding websites to give readers a chance to hang with SKILLET in Chicago or Nashville.
