Serj Tankian, System of A Down

Serj Tankian is an Armenian-American singer–songwriter, composer, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, poet, political activist, and likes mountains. He is best known as the lead vocalist, songwriter, keyboardist, of the Grammy Award-winning band, System of a Down. (Cover shoot for Electronic Musician Magazine.)

In his studio I tripped over a 1/4 inch cable, pulling down both a Fender P Bass and a stack of Mesa Boggies. They fell on his mixing console and also cracked his Apple 32" cinema display. "Don't worry about it brother" he said like a waiter who had to clean up a downed glass of wine. "I'm endorsed by all these folks. Really, no worries. They'll send new stuff out tomorrow."

No, that didn't happen. Serj was easy and talented and progressively thinking. Has anyone seen him perform? I'd be interested in your feedback. Just post a comment, here. Thx.
