Tony Sly Tribute Album (Out on October 29)

Tony Sly was the singer, a guitarist, and chief songwriter for No Use For A Name. On July 31 2012 Tony died in his sleep, at the age of 41. His last musical work, "Acoustic Volume Two" with Joey Cape, had just been released on June 9 2012, a sequel to 2004's "Acoustic." Though No Use For A Name had a typically skate-punk sound, Tony's songs translate seamlessly to other genres, as shown on both Acoustic albums. I was fortunate enough to see No Use For A Name live 3 times, but I didn't get to see any of his solo performances or acoustic shows with Joey Cape. As of right now, the NOFX cover of "The Shortest Pier" is the only song from the upcoming Tony Sly tribute I've been able to find. Much like the forthcoming SNFU album, I'm a bit doubtful I will be getting a copy before the release date. I will come back to this again when I finally get to listen to the entire album. Pick it up when it comes out!
