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.
Watch a clip of Social Distortion's performance of "California (Hustle and Flow)" from the episode after the jump.
