Legal problems, drug problems, health problems—the Cadillac Tramps have seen it all yet they're still up-and-shit-kicking. The OC punk/psychobilly staples have had their share of ups and downs since their album debut in 1987. They've had to go on hiatus due to incarceration or have just plain no-called-no-showed to their concerts. But that shit's in the past. When singer Gabby had tripple bipass surgery and a stroke in 2010, the punk community came out in full force to raise money for his medical bills, while bands like Pennywise and the Adolescents donated their time to play a benefit show for him. That's one of the coolest things about our music community–people come together to help out their musical brethren. So come see them back in the saddle and learn why you can't keep an OG punk down.
