Thoughts for Sale

Now that I've had enough coffee for the morning, I'll begin my first post at this shiny new web address.
Let me re-introduce myself. My name is Eric Slick and I live in Philadelphia. I have been a musician since I was two years old and I currently tour with King Crimson’s Adrian Belew, Frank Zappa tribute Project/Object, and Crescent Moon. In the past I’ve performed with Carlos Alomar, John Wetton, Mike Keneally, Gene and Dean Ween, Jon Anderson, Eddie Vedder, Ann Wilson, Ike Willis, Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, Umphrey’s McGee, Denny Walley, The Paul Green School of Rock Music, Eugene Chadbourne, Bob Musso, Elliott Levin, and the list continues to grow. I am an active improviser in the Black Lodge Ensemble. I have my own radio show on WRSR devoted to my love of musique concrete, classical, jazz, and other strange music entitled “Modern Works”. I consider myself to be an extremely lucky twenty year old.
This website is going to be the official home of my tour diaries, memoirs, and other useless debris (also known as my thoughts).
But for now, I must practice. I begin a US tour in less than a week with Project/Object featuring Napoleon Murphy Brock. I will be documenting that entire tour so stay tuned!

Oh boy, another Slick blog for me to post innane comments on!! now, dont panic...

Hey Eric, Ill see you at WCL next weekend, what a nice venue and honestly, Im more excited about seeing you and Dave perform your magic then I am about P/O!! Napoleon Brock freaks me out alittle and some of Frank's music confuses me ;-D

So there's your first blog post on your new site. Ok, so its from a 45 year rocker from jersey and not some sexy blonde, but hey, you made time with Dr. Dot, so I dont even want to hear about it :-D

best to you man, keep it real!

I saw you in Mexico City last month and sincerely I can not imagine a more than perfect kind of drummer to play with the Nap. Hope you and Julie come to Calgary soon.
