Muzz Skillings

Living Colour’s mainstream meld of metal, funk, jazz fusion and permutations thereof coupled with their socio-political libretto made Vivid (1988) one of the most influential slabs of its generation, and though commercial success did not ensue on following releases, the lads never wavered in their boundary stretching signature artistry.

Founding bassist Muzz Skillings is a genre traversing master, plying supportive and counter-melodic passages in the service of the songs.

A composer, singer, and guitarist, Muzz has led his own ensembles (Medicine Stick) and appeared on fine slabs by John Tiven, Alan Merrill, Wilson Pickett, and Robert Plant to cite a few.
