Mike Ness of Social Distortion Podcast

Social Distortion is one on the most influential and enduring rock bands of the last 30 years, their 2011 album Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes was my choice of best album of 2011 (see the full list here). For my 4th anniversary on the radio Social Distortion was kind enough to have their show on 11/2/12 at Starland Ballroom serve as my anniversary show. I sat down with Mike Ness and we discussed new material, radio, Springsteen playing his song at an E Street show, Lucero, how they choose opening acts and more, and Mike even DJ’s a little as he picks songs that are lineage to Social D.. you will enjoy this!
