Contributor Limelight: Chuck Berrett

Chuck Berrett is one of SLUG’s most knowledgeable writers, bringing to the table his prodigious resevoir of metal know-how with his in-depth indie-rock sensibilities. Chuck has one of the best bullshit detectors in the world: He can sniff out posers, wannabes, copycats and the insincere like a dog sniffing out buried trash from five miles away. Chuck then unflinchingly exposes said hypocrisy in his incisive writing. Chuck writes music for and plays in local bands Fixed Bayonets and Union of the Snake and sports the coolest tattoos this side of the Nile. He has been writing for SLUG for close to three years, and next to MC Welk, Chuck is without a doubt SLUG’s hottest male writer.
