John Doe calls his new album, The Westerner, “psychedelic soul music from the Arizona desert.” In addition to being a founding member of the ground-breaking LA band, X, he has recorded 8 solo records and acted in over 50 films and television productions. In the new book Under the Big Black Sun: A Personal History of L.A. Punk, Doe and assorted friends – with help from Tom DeSavia – tell the story of L.A. punk as it began, developed, and changed the music scene forever. Doe, Exene Cervenka of X, Jane Wiedlin of The Go-Go’s, Mike Watt of the Minutemen, Henry Rollins of Black Flag, and more share tales of friendships, feuds, dreams, and disappointments, acquainting us with the weirdness and wonder that defined the world they created on the fringes of Hollywood society.
