The Black Diamond Riders are a punk rock super-group that features members of Social Distortion, The Adolescents T.S.O.L, Cadillac Tramps and U.S. Bombs. They specialize in, of all things, playing jazz, blues and soul covers. Watch as burly vocalist Steve Soto, looking sharp in a suit and tie soulfully wail the lyrics to "You Don't Miss Your Water," a song once covered by legendary alt-country singer Gram Parsons. Featuring a full compliment of wind instruments and backed by the sounds of Hammond Organs and Rhodes keyboards, these guys will challenge your preconceived notions about what it means to be punk.
