I like to think I know a lot about music.  But I just discovered that I've never even heard of one of the hottest musicians out right now.  His name is Sonny John Moore... but to millions of his faithful followers, he's Skrillex.

Most of you, at least the hipper than I among you, probably discovered him sometime around the Grammys. He was nominated for five and won three.

So with all the hype I decided to dig deeper.  I wanted to know all about Skrillex and when I can see him live.  He'll be at this year’s Bamboozle 3-Day Music Festival in Asbury Park May 18th-20th.  So I'll get my chance to see him then.

But who is Skrillex?  Well, he's 24.  He's from Los Angeles and has not only worked with an impressive list of musicians, but is also a favorite among Young Hollywood.  He also seems to be at the forefront of making music free and available to everyone.

Here's some of Skrillex's work from his YouTube page.  Take a listen and let us know what you think.
