Chuck it’s been a long time since I’ve seen you man! I think the last time was some thirty years ago! We can’t let stuff like that go on.
Let’s sort out your origins first, where’s your hometown?
PHILLY, PA NORTHERN LIBERTIES. ORIGINAL START WAS IN WILMINGTON, DELAWARE.
When did skateboarding first catch your eye?
SKATEBOARDING GOT A HOLD OF ME WHEN I WAS ABOUT 11..THE ONLY SKATEBOARDS I SAW IN THE HOOD WHERE THE ONES WITH METAL WHEELS, NO GRIP TAPE AND SMALL...I WOULD HOLD ON TO A WALL AND TEACH MYSELF HOW TO MOVE AROUND ON THE DECK..I MOVED TO THE SUBURBS OF NEWARK, DE AND A KID RODE BY ON A BETTER STYLE OF SKATEBOARD AND I ASKED MY DAD TO GET ME ONE...15 BUCKS WAS SPENT ON THE SK8DECK AND I TOOK IT TO THE STREETS OF MY NEW LIFE IN THE SUBURBS..I WAS 13 YEARS OS AGE..I HAVE BEEN ON MY SKATEBOARD EVER SINCE...STOKED ON THE START OF WHAT WE ALL CREATED IN SKATING..THE FIRST KNEE SCRAPE GAVE ME A SENSE OF BEING ATTACHED TO MY SKATEBOARD.
What was your first setup?
MY FIRST SET WAS A NO NAME BRAND SKATEDECK.THEN I MOVED TO A NEWPORT SLOLOM DECK AND THEN TO A SIMS WOODKICK KICK,TRACKER TRUCKS AND BLUE KRYPTONICS.
I know you had a dream skateboard setup back in the day, what was it?
I LIKE THE POWELL BEAMERS..I WAS SO STOKED TO HAVE ONE,RIDE ONE AND ALSO GET FIBERGLASS IN MY ARMS FROM CARRYING THE DECK AROUND..THE FIRST DECK THAT MOST OF MY FRIENDS WANTED WAS THE TONY ALVA DECK..I HAD ONE OF THOSE ALSO ALONG WITH THE MULTI COLOR WHEEL OPTIONS THAT ALVA RELEASED...SO STOKED ON THOSE DAYS....EASY RIDER SK8PARK DAZE..ME AND PEANUT BROWN...
Was your neighborhood cool with you skateboarding?
MY NEIGHBORHOOD WAS AMAZING FOR SKATEBOARDING..WE HAD THE MEADOWOOD SHOPPING CENTER TO SESSION..I SKATED WITH TONY SANTORO AND JOEY W.I ALSO SKATED MY FIRST BACKYARD RAMP WITH ROB WHITE.R.I.P.IT WAS RIGHT DOWN THE STREET FROM MY HOUSW..WE HAD TO PUSH FROM THE OTHER NEIGHBORS YARD TO GET UP ENUFF SPEED..NO TRANNY JUST A SLANTED WALL..THAT'S WHERE I LEARNED EVERYTHING BEFORE WE ALL STARTED SKATING EASY RIDER SK8 PARK IN WILMINGTON, DELAWARE.
Breakdown the names of your original skate crew for us?
PHILLIP MALLET PREVO
WOODSMAN FROM CONCORD DELAWARE
MARK MANUTI so many others also..so many good firends who gave me support and great times searching for sk8 spots and searching for our youth....
What was the next closest skate scene to your own and who were some of those skaters?
THE CLOSEST SKA8 SCENE WAS CHERRYHILL SKATEPARK..WE ALL SKATED THAT PARK.WHO EVER WAS SERIOUS ABOUT SKATEBOARDING SKATED CHERRYHILL..WE ALL HAD LITTLE HOME PARKS WE STARTED UP WITH BUT WHEN CHERRYHILL SKATEPARK OPENED SO DID OUR MINDS AND WE ALL DROVE OUR PARENTS CRAZY GETTING TO THAT PARK..
WOODSMAN FROM CONCORD DELAWARE
JACK FROM SEEDS OF TERROR
ROB FROM STATEN ISLAND
THE ENTIRE CREW FROM NORTH BRUNSWICK, NJ 4H SK8 CREW.
How big was the backyard skate scene where you grew up?
THE BACKYARD SK8 SCENE IN DELAWARE WAS NICE.. I SESSIONED WITH MARK GERMACK, TED GUENIVER AND TODD WERNY THE MOST.. HE HAD A 8FOOT WIDE RAMP THE WENT VERT WITH CEMENT COPING.MARK'S RAMP AND TOM GROHOLSKI'S MINI BLUE RAMP KEPT US ALL SKATING AFTER CHERRYHILL CLOSED...I WAS 16 WHEN CHERRY HILL SK8 PARK CLOSED...THERE WHERE ABOUT 5 BACK SPOTS I HAVE SKATED THRUOUGHT MY START IN DELWARE.. SOME HALFPIPES HAD FLAT BOTTUM AND SOME DID NOT..WE STILL SKATED EVERYTHING THAT WAS AROUND...TOD WERNEY HAD A NICE RAMP ALSO...
How many ramps do you think you skated in the Northeast United States?
I HAVE SKATED ABOUT 50 RAMPS MAYBE EVEN MORE.. SO MANY OF THEM WHERE UP AND THEN A YEAR OR TWO LATER THEY WOULD BE GONE..
MY FAV RAMP WILL ALWAYS BE TOM GROHOLSKI'S PLEXI RAMP HE PURCHASED FROM THE SK8 PARK IN STATEN ISLAND.. I REMEMBER TALKING TO TOM AND HIS DAD AND THEY SAID WE FOUND THIS RAMP AND WE'RE GOING TO PICK IT UP AND SET IT UP IN THE BACKYARD..WE WENT FROM SKATING THE MINI BLUE RAMP TO THE AMAZING METAL FRAMED PLEXIGLASS RAMP.. THAT RAMP CHANGED SKATEBOARDING FOREVER..
When did you get hit with the music bug and what was the first instrument you picked up?
I WAS INTO MUSIC AS SOON AS I COULD BREATHE.. I WAS ALREADY PLAYING ON A PROFFESSIONAL LEVEL AT AGE 8.. MY DADA WOULD LET ME SIT IN WITH HIS BAND WHEN THEY WOULD REHEARSE AND PLAY SHOWS.AT AGE 2 I WAS BANGING ON POTS AND PANS AND AGE 6 I HAD MY FORST DRUM KIT.... STOKED ON MUSIC
What artists did you like to skate to back in the day?
THE ARTIST I SKATED TO FIRST WERE ROCK ARTISTS, TED NUGETNT, KISS ALL THE CLASSICS THAT KIDS GREW UP ON IN THE BURBS..WHEN I STARTED CHECKING OUT PUNK MUISC AND THE SEX PISTOLS, DEVO, CLASH, 999, BUZZCOCKS, JOE JACKSON AND ON AND ON. I FELT LIKE SKATEBOARDING HAD IT'S OWN SOUNDTRACK.. NOT TO MENTION WE WERE ALL STOKED ON THE SURF PUNKS..THEY DON'T GET ENOUGH CREDIT FOR BEING THE FIRST REAL SK8 BAND..BIG UPS TO DENNIS DRAGON AND STACY PERALTA.... MY WAVE.. BAD BRAINS, JOY DIVISION, METALLICA, ARTILLERY, VOID, MINOR THREAT, SCREAM, MOTORHEAD... SO MUCH GOOD MUSIC TO SK8 TO...
You know, out of all the sports that I know of, I don’t think you can say any of them have produced as many bands or musicians as skateboarding has, why do you think that is?
SKATEBOARDING WILL NEVER EVER BE A GENERIC SPORT.. IT'S ALL ABOUT MOVEMENT..THE MUSIC CREATES HOW WE MOVE AND SKATEBOARDING IS ALWAYS CENTERED AROUND A MOVEMENT.. THE NEW MOVEMENT NOW IS GETTING SKATEBOARDING TO ALL WALKS OF LIFE SO THEY CAN ENJOY IT HOW THEY WANT TO...
Who were your first sponsors and how did you get the hook up?
MADRID SKATEBOARDS, GULLWING TRUCKS AND OJ WHEELS. TOM GROHOLSKI AND I TEAMED UP TO WRITE THESE COMPANIES..TOM HELPED ME GET IN FIRST WITH MADRID AND THEN I WROTE SOME OTHER COMPANIES AND TOM AND I PULLED EACH OTHER UP THRU ALL THE CHANGES IN SKATEBOARDING.. WE WERE KIDS WITH BIG DREAMS AND WE PROTECTED THEM WITH OUR LIVES ATTACHED TO THEM..THAT'S WHY WE BOTH STILL SK8 ALL THE TIME TODAY. WE DON’T SEE EACH OTHER THAT MUCH BUT WE DO KEEP IN TOUCH..IT'S THE SAME AS WHEN WE WERE KIDS...GET OUT THERE AND MAKE YER MARK OR GRIND SOME COPING, OR DO BOTH AND HAVE GREAT MUSIC TO LISTEN TO..DO IT ALL.. IT’S HERE FOR US TO DO IT ALL...SKATEBOARDING IS THAT TO MOST OF US..
What series did you skate in up north?
I SKATED THE MESS SERIES WITH TOM..WE TRAVELED IN HIS TRUCK AND WE HIT AS MANY CONTEST AS WE COULD..THAT'S WHERE WE ALL STARTED MEETING EACH OTHER.. KONA CONTEST ALSO IN 82...TONS FO GOOD FRIENDS, TONS OF GREAT PEOPLE PUTTING RAMPS UP AND DEALING WITH CRAZY ASS KIDS ON SKATEBOARDS. AMAZING TIMES...
When did you start busting out with those super bad laybacks man?
I STARTED DOING LAYBACKS WHEN I FRIST SAW SHOGU KUBO DO ONE IN A MAG..I LEARNED LAYBACKS ON A BANKED WALL AT EASY RIDER WHEN I WAS 14 AND THEN I SAW DUANE PETERS DO LAYBACK ROLL OUTS IN SKATEBOARDER MAG AND THEN WE ALL GOT TO SESSION WITH HIM AT CHERRY HILL SKATEPARK...HE WAS RIPPING THEM IN THE RIGHT HAND KIDNEY.. I DECIDED TO THROW ONE UP ON COPING...AFTER A DAYS WORTH OF TRYING THEM WHEN I WAS 15, I FINALLY MADE THE TRICK MY OWN..I HAD BERT REVERTS WIRED ON VERT FOR THE LONGEST..CHERRY HILL SK8 PARK....MANG,,THAT PLACE DID WONDERS FOR ME AND PUSHING THE LIMITS....
Let’s get back to your earliest musical influences? What bands hyped you up so much that you knew that this was the direction you wanted to pursue?
BAD BRAINS,JIMI HENDRIX,JAMES BROWN,LARRY GRAHM,SLY STONE,STEVIE WONDER, GRAND FUNK RAILROAD, PARLIMENT FUNKADELIC AND A BUNCH MORE..ANY MUSIC THAT SOUNDED LIKE FREEDOM I GOT INTO...DEVO,THE CLASH, BASEMENT FIVE,THE PROFESSIONALS AND THE SEX PISTOLS TOO..THE ENTIRE PUNK MOVEMENT MASHED UP WITH THE HIPPIE MOVEMENT IN FUNK, ROCK, REGGEA, BLUES..MY PARENTS LISTENED TO A BUNCH OF MUSIC..PUNK WAS MY OWN TO GET INTO..IT'S LIKE ME WITH MY KIDS...THEY HAVE LISTENED TO WHAT I COULD BRING TO THEM AND NOW THEY LISTEN TO WHAT MAKES THEIR LIVES RIGHT...
What was or is your favorite thing about music and skateboarding?
MY FAVORITE THING ABOUT MUSIC AND SKATEBOARING IS EVERYTIME WE TRY TO PIGEON HOLE THEM THEY BOTH CHANGE ON US AND THEN WE HAVE TO CATCH UP..THEY ARE BOTH NEVER ENDING DOMINANT FORCES....

What was the last skate competition you remember skating in?
WAKING UP EVERYDAY AND GIVING THANX..THAT'S THE FIRST AND LAST COMPETITION WE ALL HAVE TO DEAL WITH..THE EVENTS IN BETWEEN ARE JUST MEMORIES TO KEEP US ALIVE..
What do you think about today’s skateboarders and the on going battle between street and vert skateboarding?
AS I SAID BEFORE SKATEBOARDING WILL NEVER LET US WIN ONE SIDE OR THE OTHER..IT'S SKATEBOARDING IF IT AIN'T ABOUT SKATEBOARDING IT'S SOMETHING I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT..SET UP A BOARD AND RIDE..WITHOUT YER HEALTH AND PROPER ENERGY AIN'T NOTHING HAPPENING..

When did you become a father and how has that affected your outlook on music and skateboarding?
I BECAME DAD AT AGE 31. LOOKING BACK ON IT NOW I FEEL LIKE I WAS 16 GOING THRU ALL OF THAT DAD STUFF...I TRIPPED ON HOW THE WORLD CHANGED RIGHT IN FRONT OF MY FACE AND NOW MY OLDEST IS TALLER THAN ME AND IN HIS OWN BAND ALREADY..I HAVE FOUR KIDS AND I LOVE EVERY MINUTE OF DEALING WITH THE PRESSURE OF BEING THE GUY THAT I GAVE SO MUCH CRAP TO...DAD..MY DAD, MY GIRLFRIENDS DAD'SMY FRIENDS DAD..WE NEVER THINK ABOUT HOW WE GROW UP UNTIL WE HAVE TO RAISE TO TAKE CAR OF SOMEONE WE LOVE TO THE BONE.

Your kids are beautiful man, I wish I had started when you did or a little earlier, I still don’t have any!
Where are you residing these days?
How many hours a day are you making music?
AS MANY AS I CAN FIT IN AS THE DAY GOES ON, SOMETIMES IT'S ALL IN MY BRAIN...MUSIC IS ALWAYS RECORDED REGARDLESS IF WE LIKE IT OR NOT...IT'S PERFECTING THE ART OF HOW WE RECORD MUSIC THAT ROCKS..IF ALL PEOPLE RECORDED AND NO ONE HAD A CHANCE TO LEARN AND LISTEN IN THERE WOULD BE NO MUSIC. IT WOULD ALL BE IN THE SHADOWS ON OUR MINDS.
Do you sleep with songs popping out in your dreams, or do you work songs out while you’re awake?
MUSIC COMES IN HOW THE AIR COMES IN. WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT MUSIC YOU GET CREATIVE THOUGHTS, MAKING THOSE CREATIVE THOUGHTS INTO IDEAL THAT PEOPLE CAN UNDERSTAND IS COMPLETELY SEPERATED FROM MUSIC..MUSIC IS LIFE. WITHOUT MUSIC THERE'S NOTHING...NOTHING....
Do you get to skate much anymore?
I SKATE ABOUT 2 TO THREE TIME A WEEK. I SESSION FDR SK8PARK AND ALTER ST WAREHOUSE IN PHILLY...I GET OUT TO BAM'S ONCE IN A WHILE. I ALSO I GET TO SKATE PLACES AND PARKS THAT MCRAD PLAYS...STOKED ON THAT. NOW IT'S TIME FOR THE LONGBOARD PHASE OF MY SKATING..WANNA LOBBY FOR MAKING LONGBOARD FLOW PARKS. THAT WOULD ROCK...
What’s your quiver like these days?
I RIDE A TOTALLY SK8 DECK, BONES WHEELS,ACE TRUCKS, PROJECTS GRIP TAPE AND ROBOT GUTS..I JUST LINKED UP WITH A COMPANY CALL BAMBUSA SKATEBOARDS...THEY ARE USING BAMBOO AND MAPLE TO MAKE DECKS. CHECK OUT ROBOT GUTS..THEY ARE FAMILY AND GOOD FAMILY TOO SK8RZ!
Who are still your favorite skaters?
TOM GROHOLSKI, BAM, FDR LOCALS, JR R.I.P...ALTER ST LOCALS. ALL THE PEOPLE WHO LOVE TO SKATEBOARD REGARDLESS OF WHAT TRICKS THEY DO...KIERAN TREECE, ISAAC TREECE, AND STACY PERALTA...

I WILL LACE YA WITH MUSIC AS IT COMES THRU....
What are your current goals?
MY GOALS ARE TO STAY HEALTHY AND TO STAY VIBRANT.ALSO TO HONOR MY PEW GRANT I JUST WON...I AM APART OF THE PEW FELLOWSHIP NOW AND ALSO AN ACTIVE MEMBER OF NARAS, THE GRAMMY FOUNDATION, BE A BETTER FATHER TO MYSELF AND MY KIDS..
Will you always skateboard?
I WILL ALWAYS SK8..IF WE DESIGN PARK FOR ALL SORT OF SKATERS THINGS WILL BE NICE OF THE BODY...IT'S LIKE BIKE RIDING, ROLLER SKATING OR WALKING.....ALL YOUTH SPIRITED EVENTS..THE GO FOR IT IS UP TO THE PERSON WHO GETS INTO THAT FRAME OF MIND...
Looking back on your youth, what memory makes you smile the most?
HAVING A SET OF PARENTS I COULD LEARN FROM AND LOOKING BACK TO LOOK ON..SO MUCH WE TAKE FOR SAKE OF THE MOMENT..OUR BRAINS WORK BECAUSE OF THE MOMENTS..IF YOU CAN SMILE YER LIVING LIFE RIGHT....
