Concerts & Musicwith Jade Jackson
The legendary and influential punk/alternative quartet Social Distortion was formed in 1978 in Fullerton, California by frontman Mike Ness and then-guitarist Dennis Danell. The band underwent lineup changes before releasing their first album, "Mommy's Little Monster", in 1983. A year earlier, Social Distortion embarked on their first national tour with fellow punk band Youth Brigade a trip chronicled in the celebrated punk rockumentary, "Another State Of Mind". Soon afterward, John Maurer and Bob Stubbs joined Social Distortion. After 1985, the band reformed and Chris Reese came on board as the band's drummer.Social Distortion disappeared for a while before releasing their second album, "Prison Bound", in 1988, which would be their first recording with the classic lineup of Ness, Danell and newcomers John Maurer on bass and Christopher Reece on drums. In 1989, the band signed a deal with Epic Records and recorded their highly successful third album, which is self-titled, containing their popular hits "Story Of My Life" and "Ball And Chain" as well as the Johnny Cash cover "Ring Of Fire".The band disappeared again after the release of their fourth album, 1992's "Somewhere Between Heaven And Hell", and Reece left Social Distortion in 1993. After auditions were held to play drums in the band, former D.O.A./Danzig drummer Chuck Biscuits joined Social Distortion to record their next album, "White Light, White Heat, White Trash", in 1996, which would be their last release on Epic Records.In 1999, while Social Distortion wasn't touring, Ness went solo, releasing two albums, "Cheating At Solitaire" and "Under The Influences", in the same year.
