John Doe on his new book about the LA punk scene and more!

We LOVE John Doe in our house. We love X, his solo work (do yourself a favor and listen to "Meanest Man in the World"), his stints with The Sadies and as The Knitters. We love all his beautiful works with Jill Sobule, Cindy Wasserman, Aimee Mann and Kathleen Edwards. From his music to his words to his acting, he's the real deal. And he's a nice fella too! Listen to my chat with John here and pick up his new book UNDER THE BIG BLACK SUN a personal history of L.A. Punk along with his new album THE WESTERNER and see him perform at the World Cafe Live on 6/10. (if you get the audiobook, chapters are read by many of those interviewed!)
