Thread: Social D Campaigns with Paul in Iowa!

  1. #1

    Default Social D Campaigns with Paul in Iowa!

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/1...-with-ron-paul

    One of the greatest bands in rock music over the past 25 years! WOW!

    DES MOINES - Social Distortion's lead guitarist, in town with his band, rallied with Ron Paul on the eve of the Iowa caucus. The guitarist, who goes by Jonny H. or Jonny Wickersham, enjoyed a mid-morning beverage while waiting for Paul to address hundreds of supporters in a Des Moines Marriott. He told HuffPost he's a strong Paul supporter, but wouldn't be out knocking on doors for the Texas Republican.

    Social D. is one of the founding American punk rock bands, still touring since its launch in the 1970s. Wickersham joined the band in 2000, after of founding guitarist Dennis Danell.

    Wickersham's attendance caused a stir among nearby reporters, some of whom speculated he wasn't actually a band member because the name he gave out didn't match the band line up. HuffPost later found Jonny H. at the Marriott bar, who said he shouldn't have given out his real name. "We're like The Ramons," he said. "We all have stage names."

    Why wouldn't one of the greatest punk/rock bands of all time support a 75 year old, OB-GYN turned 12-term congressman in his effort to win the White House?


    Ron Paul is a such a Rock Star.

    the trend continues
    "It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a person stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance."

    Ha. Sweet. My dad went to school with Ness and Danell and threw house parties with Social D, TSOL, and others in Fullerton.

    That's kinda cool, I saw them a few years ago. I'm into a lot noisier punk but it's still nice to see!

    !! Mike Ness is one of the few humans I put in the same caliber as Ron Paul. He's an absolute genius. When he went off and did his own cow-punk sort of thing, playing Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, and Bob Dylan songs it was amazing.

    Your dad, by association, rules.

    Incidentally, their new album is pretty damn unique. Good stuff.

    I remember going to see Social D in the early 90's before DD died and he joined. I'm getting old. I saw Mike Ness on TV recently and he's looking kinda old too.

    Nice endorsement, does Ness agree?

    I'm assuming official campaign has something to do with all this. There are a lot of the right musicians jumping on board. A very nice cross section of top musicians. And all jumping on so fast that it's hard to keep track of them.

    I recommend Amazon "add to cart" when people want to show support. And then everyone pulls the trigger on the sale at the same time to show jumps.

    I saw Social D in May at The Stone Pony in Asbury Park, N.J. and they blistered it. Best show I have seen in a while. Ness is still relevant.

    Awesome, I saw them there in the 90's.

    Played a double header with White Zombie IIRC.

    Blew the place away.

    Be responsible. Take care of yourself. Don't tread on other people. Slow down. Question everything. Start now.

    We are all born libertarians then something goes really wrong. Despite this truth, most people are still libertarians yet not know it.

    This cover would make Johnny proud. I like it better when they play it this way than how they did it in the 90's.

    Well, Social D's guitar player is actually IN Iowa with Ron. John Popper is volunteering for the campaign. Kelly Clarkson went out of a limb and seemed really genuine.

    I believe them.
