Quitting Is Not An Option For Mike Ness And Social Distortion

Mike Ness is a lifer.  He's given to much life and blood to call it quits.  Even after 39 years of high volume, high power, touring and recording.  He and Social Distortion have kept their heads down and plowed through their share of beatings and bad trips to make themselves a Rock N Roll institution.  Social D are currently on a Summer tour which will make a stop at The Palladium in Worcester, MA on August 11.  Mike was kind enough to give us a call while cruising through the bowels of Minnesota on his tour bus and talk about the music business then and now, his love of boxing and performing live, and if retirement is even in his vocabulary.  

Here is the documentary Another State Of Mind featuring Social Distortion and Youth Brigade on their DIY 1982 tour.

Here's a nice live version of "Prison Bound":

See Social Distortion at The Palladium in Worcester on Friday August 11.  Get tickets here.
