Skylar Grey MLIV :: ‘Inside Skylar Grey’s Liquor Cabinet’ – The Daily Beast | Photo

“….I actually named one of my dogs after that bottle of wine. Her name is Margaux….”
– Skylar Grey, The Daily Beast

Ms. Grey has done an interview with Noah Rothbaum for The Daily Beast regarding what kinds of beverages she enjoys these days.

Read a few excerpts below, and click the photo to access the full Daily Beast interview (which includes another photo)!

Inside Musician Skylar Grey’s Liquor Cabinet | The Daily Beast ::
“….Are there certain types of red wine you like in particular?
“I really enjoy Napa cabs. And I’m really into older wines. Wines that have age on them. I like a full-bodied red from anywhere. The oldest wine I’ve ever had is a 1919 Château Margaux.”

Wow! What was the occasion?
“It was just a night out.”

Sounds like a pretty good night out.
“I actually named one of my dogs after that bottle of wine. Her name is Margaux.”….

You’ve worked with such incredible musicians. Are any of them good drinking buddies?
“Macklemore doesn’t drink. Marshall [Mathers, aka Eminem] doesn’t drink, either. I’m trying to think who I’ve had a beer with. I’ve had a drink with Nick Jonas in the studio. He likes red wine as well, so we bonded over that.”….

Is there any musician dead or alive that you would like to share a bottle of wine with?
“Thom Yorke just because I’m a huge fan and I’ve never met him, and it would be really fun to have a bottle of wine and pick his brain.”….

Do you collect glassware as well?
“The glass is super important with wine. Drinking wine out of a good wine glass makes the whole experience so much better.”….”

Skylar Grey MLIII :: Remembering Chester Bennington – 21-JUL-2017

Following the very unfortunate passing of Chester Bennington (of Linkin Park/Dead By Sunrise/Grey Daze/Stone Temple Pilots) this past Thursday (July 20), Ms. Grey, who knew Bennington, shared a post remembering how he had impacted and influenced her.

Read her tribute below.

Skylar Grey Remembers Chester Bennington ::

The news of Chester Bennington’s death is a hard pill to swallow. His unique and powerful voice changed music and has made him a legend in this industry. I got to watch from the side of the stage many times as he performed for die hard fans and it was clear how deeply he affected their lives. I’ve never seen such dedicated fans. It’s been years since we were in contact, but he made a huge impact on my life being the lead singer of the band who signed me to my first record deal and publishing deal. My fellow Pisces was also the one who influenced me getting my first tattoo, a Pisces symbol, which happened back stage at a Linkin Park concert. Though he was an intimidating talent, he was a kind, gentle soul people couldn’t help but love. My thoughts are with his family and his band mates in this difficult time. RIP Chester, and thank you for everything. You are sorely missed.
