Watch Skrillex Make History Playing Guitar With A Famous Jam Band [VIDEO]
Skrillex teamed up with jam band The String Cheese Incident yesterday at Electric Forest music festival for a 13-minute jam of The Doors’ “Break On Through.” Skrillex himself rocked a guitar. The jam culminates in the infamous “Oh my god!” sample from “Scary Monsters” at the end. Skrillex had teased at the collaboration earlier in the day, sharing a snapchat story of his rehearsal with The String Cheese Incident.
Some of the more rock oriented members in the audience may have found Skrillex’s inclusion in the famous jam band’s lineup odd, but his experience with guitar oriented music makes this not as surprising for his fans. Skrillex famously teamed up the remaining members of The Doors on “Breakin’ a Sweat,” and in his recent interview with Katie Couric, he revealed that The Doors was the earliest music he could remember hearing as a child.
