Social Distortion, Marquee Theatre, 1/22/13

Social Distortion @ Marquee Theatre|1/22/23
By most standards, I arrived on the Social Distortion scene rather late, some 15 years ago. I wasn't much older than 14 when I bought my first album, and was -- like most fans -- immediately hooked.

Many of us grew up on the lyrics of Ness, who taught us to chase what we wanted, that the bad times wouldn't last forever. After an over 30-year career, he had seen and done it all. There was something comforting about that.
