Social Distortion on Guitar Center Sessions Airing Saturday; Mike Ness Tells All
Social Distortion perform at Guitar Center Sessions which Nic Harcourt hosts. I've missed that slight British accent! Plus, Mike Ness talks about Social D's 30-plus year career, how he started liking music ("By 7th grade I was listening to Lou Reed's Transformer. (While) most kids are just figuring out where their genitals are, I was learning about transvestites and heroin addicts," he says.), how hearing the Ramones, the Sex Pistols, the Clash made him think, "this is it, I'm gonna cut my hair and get rid of these fuckin' bellbottoms," and his struggle with drugs.
The episode will feature the band performing "Bad Luck," "Story of My Life" and "Prison Bound" as well as songs from their latest album Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes.
