I moved to L.A. in 1979 and soon fell in with the “New Wave” crowd at my new school. They turned me on to KROQ and through that, Rodney Bingenheimer’s program. Right about that time another cool kid that eventually became one of my best friends taped some records for me which included TSOL. Red Cross, Social Distortion, Black Flag, Adolescents, and Germs. This soon lead to gig-going and the rest is hardcore history.
