Eduardo "Skay" Beilinson, (La Plata, Buenos Aires, Argentina, January 15, 1952),[1] is an Argentine guitarist who has played in the band Patricio Rey y sus Redonditos de Ricota, one of the most famous rock bands of Argentina. He is considered one of the best guitarists of his country. Among his influences are Jimi Hendrix, Cream, Keith Richards, Pink Floyd, Vanilla Fudge and The Byrds.

Career[edit]

Beilinson started playing the guitar when he was 12 years old. Before Patricio Rey y sus Redonditos de Ricota he played with his brother in La Cofradia de la Flor Solar in early 1970s, together with Kubero Diaz.

During the decade of 1970s and early 1980s joined a group called "Taxi Rural" and then "La Galletita" with Edelmiro Molinari.

In 1978, with a Carlos Solari and Carmen Castro formed the band "Patricio Rey y sus Redonditos de Ricota" that established him as a musician. The group managed to be among the most important exponents of Argentine rock with Sumo, Virus, Soda Stereo, Divididos, Pappo, Almendra, Vox Dei, Charly García and Luis Alberto Spinetta among others. He and Carlos "Indio" Solari have been the only band members who have been in all their formations until he decided to leave for a while due to creative differences.[2]

He started playing alone in 2002,[3] and he published the album A través del Mar de los Sargazos. In 2004 he published the album Talismán. After that, he published his third album La marca de Caín with the same band, so he called the band "Skay y los Seguidores de la Diosa Kali". In 2010, they published their fourth album called ¿Dónde Vas?.

In August 2013, Skay together to his band "Los Fakires" released his fifth studio album La Luna Hueca. In late 2013, Beilinson rejected a proposal of his former bandmate Solari to meet with other members of Los Redondos.
