Social Distortion’s Mike Ness joins Matt Pinfield for this episode of New & Approved.
Sadly, Mike Ness was diagnosed with tonsil cancer earlier this year, but that hasn’t stopped him from making music. Ness discusses the struggles of cancer treatment, but with a grateful attitude he’s been able to persevere and still do what he loves.
Social Distortion will be releasing a new album next year and will also be setting off on tour with their friends of Bad Religion. They’ll be celebrating the 40th anniversary of their first record “Mommy’s Little Monster” and playing the record in its entirety.
Ness tells Matt about his history and how he first got into rock and roll and eventually punk rock. He chats about his favorite early punk bands, almost recording with Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash, and the first time he stepped into a studio.
