Alex Rosamilia is an extremely accomplished guitarist and works on everything from the music with The Gaslight Anthem to metal happenings of Something About Death or Dying. His subtle intellectual charm comes across in his music and friendly demeanor. He was kind enough to humor this SLUG writer recently with a few words and I am more than happy to share them with you.
SLUG: Hi, this is Ben from SLUG Magazine what are you guys up to? How’s the road?
The Gaslight Anthem: We’re actually doing a sound check right now in Baltimore Maryland.
SLUG: So while I was internet stalking you, I noticed you have photos of Skeletor, Voltron and Cloud (Final Fantasy VII) figures, so is it safe to assume you have some geek tendencies?
The Gaslight Anthem: Ha, yeah a bit. The Voltron stuff was from my childhood and so is the Skeletor stuff, but recently I’ve started collecting them again. I collect a lot of the Final Fantasy stuff too. I’m a geek on all fronts.
SLUG: What was your favorite show growing up? http://www.slugmag.com/articles/9601/Geeking-out-with-Alex-Rosamilia-of-The-Gaslight-Anthem.html
