As one of the original members of the legendary Bones Brigade skate team, Tommy Guerrero can be seen in numerous skate films by Powell Peralta from the early ’80s. A recipient of the Legend Award at 2013’s Tranworld SKATEboarding Awards, Guerrero’s contribution to skateboarding continues to be celebrated alongside his pursuits in music. In addition to having played in skate rock bands Free Beer and Jet Black Crayon, Guerrero’s solo efforts have also earned their fair share of accolades. His third studio album Soul Food Taqueria on London’s Mo’ Wax Records experimented with a blend of Latin soul, trip-hop, and R&B and topped music charts across the board. Other releases for Galazia, Function 8, Rush and Quannum continued to experiment with contrasting genres, captivating West Coast punks and Japanese beat-makers alike. We caught up with Guerrero in San Francisco where he let us in on his Essentials. Highlighting both of his creative outlets, a Krooked x Zip Zinger Skateboard is positioned next to his Gibson guitar. Other important essentials include his trademark glasses, an El Chicano “45 record, Reservation Blues by Sherman Alexie, and of course a Modelo Especial and some healthy green tea to balance it out.
